Even better post-WWII drama than "The Best Years of Our Lives"--See it!
11 April 2003 | by (New York City, USA) – See all my reviews

From what I've read, "Till the End of Time," a heartbreakingly adult portrayal of the problems of ex-GIs returning hone after the conclusion of WWII, was eclipsed by the tremendous success of "The Best Years of Our Lives," released during the same year (1946). I'm probably a minority of one, but much prefer this film to the latter (though I love that one, too). My favorite, most underrated actress of all-time, Dorothy McGuire, should have won all the Best-Actress awards for her raw, lacerating, wounded portrayal of a war widow hitting the bottle to cope with the reality that her husband will not be coming home--and finds love, solace and sexual comfort via her affair with a younger--but equally lost and confused ex-GI, portrayed with equal hurt and sensitivity by the cruelly underrated Guy Madison (yes, Madison was duly celebrated for his good looks--but never received his proper due as an actor of quiet strength and aching vulnerability). The Hays Office must have been asleep (thank God!) when this couple with chemistry to spare escape for an interlude on the beach (and eclipse the ridiculously overrated clinch between Lancaster & Kerr in "From Here to Eternity"), expressing their unbridled lust--and mutual emotional needs--with a bold honesty rarely captured on the screen--in ANY movie. Madison's parents, confused by their young son's remoteness and desperation and well-meaning attempts to treat him as the naive young son they saw off to war (the scene at the dining room table when Madison unintentionally horrifies them by describing the filth and horrors of his wartime experiences is one of the most shatteringly honest moments in the movie) are portrayed by Tom Tully and Ruth Nelson with anguished candor. And the reappearance in the last portion of the film by Madison's physically disabled war comrades, Robert Mitchum and Bill Williams, as lost and shattered as he is, build to a sequence in a bar involving racial bigotry that will clutch your heart. I find it shocking that several commentators on this database have remarked how unattractive they find Ms. McGuire. Prior to this movie, Ms. McGuire was known for light-hearted comedies (at which she excelled). But finally given the chance to portray a straight, often heartrending adult role, Ms. McGuire radiates a mature, unglamorized sexuality and raw candor that she was never again allowed to show in the movies. She was never as beautiful and meltingly honest as she was allowed to be in "Till the End of Time." And her romantic relationship with the equally neglected but touchingly sincere Mr. Madison creates a spontaneous combustion rarely seen in a motion picture--before or since. "Till the End of Time" is no soap opera. It stands as a compassionate and haunting depiction of human beings in need of other human beings during times of almost unendurable stress. It has never been equalled, and is one of the handful of films I can truly call a work of art.
