Veteran’s Week: Matinee Movies

November 16, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Saturday, Nov. 16, the Upcountry History Museum-Furman University brings two action-packed films to the screen with the last of the week’s Veterans’ Week Matinee Movies showings. At 11:00 a.m., the classic 1950 movie, “The Men” looks at the long process of healing experienced by a WWII veteran paralyzed in combat. Played by Marlon Brando in his film debut, this vet struggles to overcome bitterness and anger as he tries to adjust to life as a paraplegic. At 2:00 p.m., “The Best Years of Our Lives” lights up the screen. This 1946 movie is noted for its portrayal of three veterans trying to return to life at home after WWII. It starred Dana Andrews, Fredric March, Harold Russell and Myrna Loy.
