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.

Did You Know?
In the end credits, it is listed that Harry Rabinowitz
conducted John Barry
's score. The reason for this is because at the time of the recording, Barry was living in America, and was not able to fly to England to conduct the score, where it was recorded for financial reasons. So what is mostly heard in the film is Barry's score as it was originally written, because Rabinowitz did not want to touch Barry's score, and Barry couldn't provide any rewrites. Another problem arose with this situation, because Peter Hyams
, the writer and director, did want rewrites for the last half-hour of the film. Arrangements were made, and, with the exception of one cue heard during the scene with Christopher Plummer
's and Harrison Ford
's characters discussing Margaret in the top of the barn, new music was written for the scenes that happen in France. This was also the first time John Barry had a score recorded in CTS Studios' new location; The Music Centre in Wembley, England. All of his other scores recorded in CTS Studios were recorded at their previous location in Bayswater, London. See more
