Summary
"Americans flocked to the movies in 1945 and 1946 - a critical juncture in American history and American cinema and the central point of the three-decade heyday of the studio system's sound era. Best Years recaptures this transformative time through a rich blend of screen genres - from the battlefront to the home front, the peace film to the woman's film, psychological drama, and the period's provocative new style, film noir. In Atlanta and Detroit, Los Angeles and New York, Chicago and Honolulu, and small cities in between, the bond between screen and viewer was perhaps never tighter."--Page 4 of cover
