One of Harrison Ford's favorite films. When Phillip Noyce was chosen to direct Patriot Games (1992), Ford asked the producers who was the director because he had never heard of him before (and he had the power to veto the director if he didn't like or know). He was told that Noyce directed Dead Calm (1989), which was a big hit but Ford wasn't familiar with the movie. But when he asked about other films directed by Noyce and Newsfront (1978) was mentioned, he said he loved that movie and trusted the studio with their choice of director.
