The Best Years of Our Lives

This movie was on the Afi 100 list. It is strange because I've haven't heard much about this movie previously. Once I started researching it, I found that it was the second highest grossing movie behind 'Gone With the Wind.'

Nothing really stood out cinematically but it was a really touching movie. It's all about the troubles that three WWII veterans had to deal with when they came back from war.

It was a three hour movie, but it didn't feel long.

The actor with no hands was especially effecting.

It was shot by Greg Toland and there was two great shots. One was when Homer (the amputee) punched his hands through a window to scare some kids. The other one was the out of work airforce bomber who walked through a airplane scrapyard.
