Till the End of Time is a 1946 drama film starring Dorothy McGuire, Guy Madison, Robert Mitchum, and Bill Williams. Released the same year as the better known The Best Years of Our Lives, it covers much the same topic: the adjustment of World War II veterans to civilian life. It was based on the novel They Dreamed of Home by Niven Busch. Unlike the soldier, sailor and airman of The Best Years of Our Lives, the male leads are all U.S. Marines.
Frederic Chopin's Polonaises Op. 40 is played throughout the film; it was given lyrics and became a major hit at the time.
Three former GIs have a hard time readjusting to civilian life. Perry can't deal with the loss of the use of his legs. William is in trouble with bad debts. And Cliff can't decide what he wants to do with his life, although he gets encouragement from war widow Pat Ruscomb.
