L.A. Times Article about Actor Harold Russell

To those of you who subscribe to the L.A. Times:  Please look in the “Calendar” section for a lovely article by writer/producer/actor Mark Montgomery about his friend, actor Harold Russell.  Some of you may remember an article I posted last month about the 1946 Academy Award winning Best Days of Our Lives.  This film is about the challenges that three WWII veterans encounter in re-adjusting to civilian life.

Russell, who plays amputee Homer Parrish in that film, was in fact a veteran who lost both hands in a training accident.  For his performance, Russell won the Academy’s Best Supporting Actor award.  And no, it wasn’t a sympathy vote.  He was really that good.
