Fred Derry is an ordinary working man who finds it difficult to hold down a job or pick up the threads of his marriage. Having had both hands burnt off during the war, Homer Parrish is unsure that his fiancée's feelings are still those of love and not those of pity. Each of the veterans faces a crisis upon his arrival, and each crisis is a microcosm of the experiences of many American warriors who found an alien world awaiting them when they came marching home.

☆ Very Good Selection Of Some Legendary Movies With A Interesting Ranking ☆
But some movies like Shawshank Redemption, Rocky , Star Wars A New Hope and some old films of the 20's shouldn't be ranked in the top 100 plus many viewers including me thinks that The Godfather Part II is even better than the first one.

Not bad, but no Breathless? No Intolerance? No Napoleón? No Cabiria? No For a Few Dollars More? No Once Upon a Time in the West? C'mon, dude! They deserved at least a honorable mention.
