The war vet
10 June 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Charles Boyer is so convincing here as this war vet who encounters so many difficulties to get back to life again. I guess that was exactly what many veterans lived too, vets disturbed by post traumatic disorders and I don't even speak of other financial issues...This story seems so realistic that I think it could not have been shown on the big screen, too gloomy, but only for TV audiences. And, of course, especially veterans. For an authentic war vet who would see this episode, I am sure this would be a painful experience because it would be so close to his own experience. Robert Florey gave a true little masterpiece with this pure drama, pulled by so convincing actors. An outstanding piece of work dedicated to those who fought for their country and who finally were not so well rewarded for this. Painful.
