WWII’s scars were still fresh as Wyler—who had served in the Air Force—met the challenge of making a meaningful film about the Stateside readjustment of servicemen (portrayed by Fredric March, Dana Andrews, and real-life vet/first-time actor Harold Russell) and their families. Audiences cherished it, fellow filmmakers King Vidor and Billy Wilder hailed it, and seven Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director followed.
