Storyline

During the Second World War, an American Pilot stationed in England meets a young British nurse during an air raid on London. The two instantly fall in love, despite the fact that the young Nurse is already married; a secret she keeps hidden from her American lover. After being shot down behind enemy lines, while being assigned to ferry a British agent into France, the American pilot realizes that his secret agent cargo is in fact his lover's husband, and that the two must now work together in order to survive.

Trivia

Harrison Ford shot this movie after being Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) and before becoming Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981). As such, when this movie was made, it was actually sandwiched between two of Ford's and film history's biggest blockbusters of all time. See more »

Quotes

2nd Lt. Jerry Cimino: [over the plane's intercom as Halloran taxis their B-25 for take off] You know these things are made of metal, right? Did you ever try and pick one up? You can't. You know why? Because it's made of metal, and metal's heavy. Very heavy. You don't believe me? Just try and pick one of these things up. You'll see. You'll wrench your back, that's what you'll do. Air isn't heavy, you know? This pile of junk is heavy. It's heavier than air. Much heavier. Don't you see? This thing is not supposed to be ...

What a romantic war movie should be
16 May 2001 | by (Memphis, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I don't understand all of the negative comments about this movie. It's not like they set out to make another Gone With The Wind, people. I usually hate this kind of movie, but I loved this one! Ford was just beginning to come into his own as an actor, and did a wonderfully believable job. The plot, though a bit predictable, at least went about it in a reasonable way. Entertaining way to spend a couple of hours. I guess I'm just one of those people who doesn't understand what movie making "art" is all about. I've seen a lot of critically acclaimed films that I wouldn't use to balance a short table leg.
