Trivia

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

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.
