The Best of Men follows one remarkable doctor as he transforms the standards of care for paraplegics. Arriving at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in 1944, Doctor Guttman reinvigorates the lives of his staff and patients with one daring move: he introduces athletics into the rehabilitation plan of his patients, paralyzed soldiers who have been cast-off and are facing death from neglect.

Comments about PBS The Best of Men DVD:

This is a moving and triumphant story -- very well acted and written, never descending into bathos -- that I have watched several times with such satisfaction that I have decided it belongs in my DVD collection. In my home.

Excellent story and production

Comments about PBS The Best of Men DVD:

This true account was well written and performed by genuinely appealing actors across the board. The scenes were to the point, with crisp believable dialogue and nuanced emotion. The sad condition of the wounded soldiers was nicely complemented by the strong character and positive outlook of Dr. Guttman. Each scene revealed a step taken by him toward better care of these men, as his actions produced a good response in them, winning their trust and affection until they called him "Poppa". This movie shows the best of these British characters/actors. I was surprised at the ending, not expecting to see his accomplishment because I hadn't read the blurb first - that was a delightful reward to watching Dr. Guttman's work all along. The film is a reminder to me that helping those in need is the highest aim. I have watched the film 3 times in the last week and will show it at our retirement community movie night this Saturday. Five stars!

Inspiring and Riveting!!

Comments about PBS The Best of Men DVD:

The movie, based on a true story, is truly inspiring. It achieves the difficult goal of addressing a heartbreaking situation without leaving the viewer in tears, but rather, awed by the tenacity of the characters. I usually never want to see a movie more than once, but I bought this movie the very next day. It's a keeper!
