Summary

Three marines struggle to adapt to civilian life in the aftermath of the Second World War. One sees hope of a bright future in a relationship with a war widow, but his two friends fair less well, one plunging deeper into debt and the other embittered by the loss of his legs. Drama, starring Guy Madison, Robert Mitchum, Dorothy McGuire and Bill Williams.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Overshadowed by the similarly plotted The Best Years of Our Lives, which was released the same year, this melodrama about three returning Second World War veterans was a successful vehicle for Guy Madison, whose heart-throb good looks served him well during the 1940s and 50s. Top-billed Dorothy McGuire is endearingly sympathetic as a war widow, a role that could have become cloying in other hands, and the youthful-looking Robert Mitchum provides a tough contrast to Madison's lightweight leading man. The theme song, adapted from Chopin's Polonaise in A Flat Major, was a massive hit in its day for Perry Como.
