As the posh, sweet daughter Sarah Sellinger, young Patsy Kensit seems the model of good breeding and domesticity. However, within less than a decade her saucy good looks and free-wheeling "rock chick" lifestyle would become front-page fodder for Britain's tabloids, including coverage of her short-lived marriages to Dan Donovan (Big Audio Dynamite), Jim Kerr (Simple Minds), and Liam Gallagher (Oasis). Her real-life father "Jimmy the Dip" Kensit was a London underworld figure of the 1950s-1960s, reputedly associated with the notorious Kray twins and Richardson gang. See more »
When Harrison and Christopher escape the SS building, the guards in the downstairs hall are not there when they exit although they were there seconds earlier when the four German soldiers entered the building and walked down the hall. The escape was simplified without the guards. See more »
When I read the synopsis for the plot of 'Pearl' I thought of 'Hanover Street' right away. I saw this movie when I was 10 years old and was impressed by it's pacing, the plot twist, and the fact that in the end it is just as it is billed, a romantic war movie. For a guy like me who cant stand romantic war movies I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed this obscure film not once but the many times I have watched it. If during the course of a film you feel that same longing a character experiences then it has made it's mark. When David Halloran, Harrison's character, transitions from cocky bomber pilot to reluctant pilot who begins to hear the concerns of his bombardier as well as his heart, from the unhealthy romance of two people in need of something concrete in a time of uncertainty, from the struggle to get back to the one you love this movie runs the gammit of what war is like for lovers, soldiers, and ordinary civilians caught up in it. Think of loving someone so much they make you ache then throw in the fact that they are someone elses lover and the knowledge that you will have to turn and walk away from them forever.
