      Despite not being an actor by trade, Russell holds his own alongside a seasoned cast. This book can be one of the books elderly should read to understand the characters we meet in life. While waiting for his military transport flight, he wanders into a vast graveyard of mothballed warplanes. It trusts entirely in the strength of its story. It's no easy thing to wage war for years on end and then sit behind a desk in a bank. Al and Fred look on, and then Fred walks to a phone booth in the far background to make a crucial call.

      He was working with the great cinematographer Gregg Tolandknown for his deep-focus photography on such films as " Citizen Kane ," and often Wyler uses deep-focus instead of cutting, so that the meaning of a scene can reveal itself to us, instead of being pounded down with close-ups. Other Wyler touches included constructing life-size sets, which went against the standard larger sets that were more suited to camera positions. Or maybe, like Joe Maroon, MD, you were performing brain surgery one day, and filling wheel tractor-trailers and flipping hamburgers at a truck stop in Wheeling, West Virginia, the next. It trusts entirely in the strength of its story.

      Russell was an untrained actor, but utterly sincere. It is one of the most poignant love stories written when the young age love fades with tremors of old age. Share this:. He disappears after the beginning of the movie. The film's Academy standard aspect ratio has, of course, been preserved on Blu-ray.

Best years of their lives book

As far as Mr. He wrote, It is seldom that there comes a motion picture which can be wholly and enthusiastically endorsed not only as superlative entertainment, but as food for quiet and humanizing thought The problem is that while Homer has come to terms, hardly anyone else around him can say the same.

It's even more difficult when he has to balance fiduciary responsibility with the sight of his fellow servicemen struggling to eke out a life for themselves. While waiting for his military transport flight, he wanders into a vast graveyard of mothballed warplanes.

Andrews plays him simply, choosing a naturalistic style, which matches the rest of the film, but results in a performance that somehow give us a glimpse of deep emotions ever simmering beneath the surface.

The jazz drummer Gene Krupa was seen in archival footage, while Tennessee Ernie Fordlater a television star, appeared as an uncredited "hillbilly singer" in the first of his only three film appearances. Nearly seven full decades have passed since The Best Years of Our Lives first roared into theaters, but its power and resonance haven't diminished in the slightest.

Still, none of that diminishes my enthusiasm in the slightest. That's why the movie is so effective, and maybe why it doesn't seem as dated as some dramas.
