The 1946 Academy Award®-winning film “The Best Years of Our Lives” featured Harold Russell and Hoagy Carmichael. Russell was a real-life war veteran who lost both his hands during the war when a defective fuse exploded in his grasp. Russell, who won the Supporting Actor Oscar® for his portrayal of Homer Parrish in the film, received an additional Oscar statuette as a Special Award for “bringing hope and courage to his fellow veterans.” He and Carmichael, pictured here, played a piano duet in the film, which won the Oscar for Best Picture of 1946.
