Written by Robert E. Sherwood from MacKinlay Kantor’s blank-verse novella, Glory for MeThe Best Years of Our Lives is William Wyler’s finest, most moving film, the one most infused with his humane sensibility and least compromised by melodrama.

It essays the civilian readjustment of three soldiers upon their return home to Boone City somewhere in the corn belt. Their paths never crossed before the war, but they become friends on their flight back in a military transport.

The supernally clear deep focus that cinematographer Gregg Toland helped Wyler achieve suggests that the present contains a vision of the future. However, the most brilliant passage, in an airfield of retired B-52 bombers, finds Fred wandering into his recent past. Oscars for best picture, direction, screenplay.
