Veterans on Film

The Guild Cinema celebrates Veterans Day with a five-day film festival of classic vet-related movies. Things get started right on Saturday and Sunday with William Wyler's multi-Oscar-winning 1946 drama The Best Years of Our Lives. Dana Andrews, Fredric March and Harold Russell play a trio of airmen returning home to small-town America after World War II. On Monday and Tuesday, it's a double-feature of the 1932 crime drama I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang starring Paul Muni as a WWI vet who ends up on a Southern chain gang and The Small Back Room, a little-seen 1949 British drama about a WWII bomb diffuser. On Wednesday and Thursday, it's another two-for-one with Peter Bogdanovich's influential 1968 thriller Targets, about a Vietnam vet who goes trigger happy at a drive-in theater, and Fred Zimmerman's powerful 1957 story of a Korean War Vet addicted to morphine, A Hatful of Rain.
