“The Best Years of Our Lives” movie poster
Ghen Martin draws a new poster for this classic movie
Cinema and illustration are my two big passions, so it’s not difficult for me to find a film to think about and draw. This was the time for classics (yes, once more!) and sketch a new movie poster of The Best Years of Our Lives, directed by one of my favorite directors, William Wyler, who still holds this record: nominated 12 times for an Academy Award as Best Director; he won three Oscars*, and this was the second one.

- Best Picture.
- Best Director: William Wyler.
- Best Actor in a Leading Role: Fredric March.
- Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Harold Russell, who also received a Honorary Award “for bringing hope and courage to his fellow veterans through his appearance in the film”.
- Best Writing, Screenplay: Robert E. Sherwood.
