The Best Years of Our Lives

This is Thursday morning. Tuesday night we watched The Best Years of Our Lives on TCM. What a fabulous movie! Harold Russell, who played Homer:

– Was not an actor prior to this film
– Was discovered by the director who saw him in a documentary (due to his hands)
– Did a great job
– Won two Oscars for his performance: Best supporting actor and an honorary Oscar for being an inspiration for disabled war veterans throughout the U.S., making him the first (and only) actor to receive two Oscars for the same role.

Highly recommended. Five stars.
