5.0 out of 5 stars the best film of its type ever made ?? 23 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
This film is quite simply my favourite film of all time . The 163 minutes pass by in no time and the fact it won 7 academy awards is a further pointer . The story is simplistic ...3 American serviceman return from war duty with a mixture of relief at coming home to fear at how their families will react to their reappearance after years away with differing outcomes...the signature performance for me is from the disabled serviceman who was plucked from total obscurity to play this role and whose story is the most poignant . The direction from William Wyler is magnificent and a further delight is the musical score which undoubtedly squeezes every ounce of emotion from your body as you watch the film cover a mutliplicity of scenarios that beset the returning serviceman and their loved ones at that time .I am a relatively stereotypical middle-aged man who keeps his emotions in check and in the last 30 or so years that has passed since first watching the film (I have seen it at least 15 times over the years ) it has brought tears every time ...a masterpiece it truly is and I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to look at a definitive reflection of the emotional side of war when heroes who have served their country (try to) return to the physical and emotional ties of their civilian life .Yes , it is over 50 years old and dated to many but as someone who is a genuine film buff who has watched and enjoyed many genres of films made from all decades this one is my all-time favourite . Buy it and enjoy ....

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves its place in film history 13 Dec 2010
Format:DVD
Before Platoon, before Coming Home, before even Apocalypse Now, there was this film. Made in 1946, it grabbed nearly every major Academy Award in a year where there was plenty of stiff competition. And it's not hard to see why. Dana Andrews gives a riveting performance as the USAF Captain shipped home after the war to a life of menial work in a perfume store. Along the way he meets Frederic March (who won the Oscar for his performance as an upper class banker whose life is changed forever by the war) and a young disabled war veteran with hooks in place of hands. Although the subject is serious, the film has plenty of comedy to keep it light and stop it from becoming downbeat. But the real story is how these men have to cope with being thrust back into a normal, trivial world. It's a subject handled with shocking realism - from Andrews' disturbed nightmares to March's drinking and the disabled hero's depression. One of the film's most powerful scenes is when Andrews strolls through an aircraft graveyard, and we can't help but think he's destined for the same fate. But amid the social comment, there's also a tender love story, a Scrooge-like tale of a banker who gains a conscience, and a story about redemption and hope amid the poverty of post-War America. The film stands up to scrutiny after over sixty years, and reminds us that once upon a time, Hollywood made films for grown-ups too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Years Of Our Lives 2 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
Captivating film that has stood the test of time. Great storyline and acting. The film also has a positive message about life which many current films dont have. Really enjoyed it. Uplifting. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie, pity about the lip synch! 31 May 2010
Format:DVD
A beautifully made Human story. Loved every minute of it. Unfortunately two movies out the ten I ordered had problems with the lip synching. Forbidden Planet was AWFUL, but this disk was really annoying too. As the movie progressed it got worst. Really disappointing. At the end I just closed my eyes and listened to the soundtrack. Delivered promptly and well packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Years of Our Lives Music Score 19 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
Other comments about William Wyler's finest film ("Ben-Hur" notwithstanding) cover the basics. To these I add my own personal comments about Hugo W Friedhofer's Oscar-winning original score, which, following the release of the film in 1946, was reviewed in several music publications at the time. This was unheard of for a Hollywood film score, particularly one by a composer who did not compose 'serious' music for the concert hall. Later, 'The Technique of Film Music', issued by Focal Press UK, carried a lengthy analysis of Friedhofer's score.

Friedhofer's score reflects the Americana style of Aaron Copland, Elliott Carter (particularly the 2nd-movement of his First Symphony) and, to a lesser extent, George Gershwin. There are several motives in the film, each of which identify the dramatis personae. This is one film score that demands the attention of the viewer. Watch the film first; then, play it again, listening only to the music. It will simply amaze you. To call Friedhofer's score a masterpiece would be an understatement. It stands quite alone. If not the finest American film score from the sound era, it holds pride-of-place as being among the top three, alongside Alex North's "Spartacus" and Bernard Herrmann's "Vertigo".

4.0 out of 5 stars Is that Chopsticks You're Playing, Hoagy? 8 Jan 2011
By Mario
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very good post-war gently soap operatic piece with some effective naturalistic performances, especially from Myrna Loy (lovely) and Frederic March (the profile still intact). Harold Russell, the amateur, is good, and the scene in which he needs to get ready for bed pretty startling. Photography good, Hoagy good, Teresa Wright and Dana Andrews also good: it is convincingly optimistic about the future which is of course utterly unconvincing nowadays. Grown-up and yet naive at the same time from our perspective. 170 minutes flies by in a narrative in which we care about most characters a lot.
