Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the nineteenth Best Picture Winner: “The Best Years Of Our Lives.”
“The Best Years Of Our Lives” follows three World War II veterans (Fred, Al, and Homer) who return home to small-town America to discover that they and their families have been irreparably changed. Fred, a war hero, is unable to compete with more highly skilled workers and has to return to his low-wage soda clerk job. Bank executive Al gets into trouble for offering favorable loans to veterans. And after losing both hands in the war, Homer returns to his loving fiancée but struggles to adjust to civilian life. Directed by William Wyler, the film stars Dana Andrews as Fred Derry, Virginia Mayo as Marie Derry, Fredric March as Al Stephenson, Myrna Loy as Milly Stephenson, Harold Russell as Homer Parrish, and Cathy O’Donnell as Wilma Cameron.
