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 »

Goofs

While Harrison and Lesley are in the cafe having tea, Lesley leaves her left glove on hiding her wedding ring. It would be odd if someone left one glove on. Then the glove is pulled off later, after the lengthy bomb raids where the two lovers have been huddled together for a while, to reveal the ring. See more »

An average love story during WW2, it's worth an rental,OK melodrama!!
19 November 1999 | by Doc_WhoSee all my reviews

This love story is set during Europe during World War Two. Harrison Ford plays an American pilot who falls for a nurse played by Lesley-Anne Down. Eventually the miltary send Ford on a spy mission with Christpher Plummer. The wife must decide what to do with her love life. It is average melodrama set during World War 2. This movie is OK if you love Harrison Ford, but I will pass and watch one of his better movies!!If you like love stories set during this era of history check it out !!Otherwise, avoid this love story mess!!!But if you are a least bit curious check it out at the library or the video store!!!
