Trivia

Before filming started, Anthony Hopkins scoured the bookshops of London's Charing Cross Road trying to find a copy of the novel by George Feifer, upon which this film was based. He had no luck and went to catch a train home. There at the station, lying forgotten on a bench, was a copy of the book. Years later, Hopkins met Feifer, who told him that he had lent his own copy to a friend, who then lost it. Hopkins produced the one he found and asked if it was his. By an amazing coincidence, it was the author's own book Hopkins had chanced upon. See more »

The Girl from Petrovka (1974)
31 December 2009 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

When I saw this title on the TV didn’t know what to expect. Anthony Hopkins with Goldie Hawn and Hal Holbrook…It was enough for me so I decided to stay up (it was late at night) and watch it! I didn’t regret it. I saw Goldie Hawn in a role that I am not used seeing her in. Anthony Hopkins acting was really different from what I am used too and Hal Holbrook was great as well. The story was really crazy but decent and I didn’t find a lot of comic elements. It is about an American journalist falling in love with a Russian woman who was an outcast. It takes place in the Soviet Union and it has a really dramatic touch. Although it is a romantic film, I wouldn’t call it a chick flick. The story is really great and I hope that if you get a chance to see this one you will really like it.
