Product Description


Harrison Ford is impossibly young and handsome as an American pilot in the World War II romance Hanover Street; Lesley-Anne Down (The Great Train Robbery) is stunningly beautiful as the British nurse who falls in love with him, despite being married to British intelligence agent Christopher Plummer. In fact, everything about Hanover Street is just a little over the top, from the insanely romantic dialogue to the absurd war-buddy banter of Ford and his bomber crew to the love-making montage in which Down seems to have at least a dozen orgasms. Down and Plummer have a daughter (played by future Lethal Weapon 2 love interest Patsy Kensit) who's so precious and precocious you just want to smack her. The whole thing is almost a camp pastiche of a war romance--but when Ford and Plummer find themselves together behind enemy lines, you'll suddenly discover that you're caught up in the story. Through sheer movie-star charisma and cunningly ridiculous plot mechanics, Hanover Street becomes not only entertaining, but even touching. Plummer is particularly good as an ordinary man who wishes to become something more, Ford is stalwart as only he can be, and Down is just too lovely to resist (it's hard to understand how her career ended up with the likes of Beastmaster 3: The Eye of Braxus and Death Wish 5: The Face of Death). All in all, a surprisingly enjoyable cinematic experience. --Bret Fetzer

Yet another World War II picture of a war-torn young man and a young woman who meet by chance and quickly fall in love. It all happens so quick. But what makes this film different than the others is a 36 year old Harrison Ford (who looks like he's 23) and Lesley-Anne Down star in the film. Harrison Ford did this film before he made Raiders of The Lost Ark and the other "Indiana Jones" films. This film plays like a soap opera and tries really hard to stir up emotion for you. This story has an interesting twist. Also in the cast is Christopher Plummer, Richard Masur, Patsy Kensit and John Ratenberger. DVD is in wide-screen format. Also includes Director's Audio Commentary and bonus trailers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Story About Love And War March 4 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Hanover Street in the theaters was a bigger bomb than any that fell in the period it depicts, World War II. I saw it on the TV not too long ago, and it is not too bad of a film. Harrison Ford, in one of his first films since Star Wars, is American Bomber Pilot David Halloran, a man who falls for a married woman. They have an affair, and then he is dispatched to fly a secret mission to deliver a covert operative into Germany. He turns out to be the husband of the woman he had an relationship with. Soon Halloran and this man must become friends and put their lives in each others' hands. There is some wit here, plus Harrison Ford and Christopher Lee, this movie has something for everybody. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see for Harrison Ford fans!! July 19 2001
One of Harrison Ford's underrated best. Set during WWII, when Ford meet Leslie Ann Down the two can't help but fall in love because the sparks fly. The problem? She is married and truly loves her husband (Christopher Plummer) but can't help but be attacted to the dashing Ford who is a dare-devil ace bomber pilot. The stronger the attraction grows, the more cautious Ford gets in flying his missions. When fate send him on a mission with her husband, you can't help but not know who to root for. A really beautiful, bitter-sweet love story with enough action to keep the guys interested. Ladies - get out the tissue for this one. It is great!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hanover Street Aug. 9 2001
Hanover Street is one of those movies that slipped by me when it was first released in 1979. I caught part of it years ago on television. This new DVD version is excellent. Peter Hyams managed to present this World War II movie differently than one would normally expect from a movie about this subject. With romance, humour, action and suspense the movie literally captures you with it's magnetism. There are several scenes behind enemy lines where Hyams almost performs magic in creating intensity of the moment. Harrison Ford is wonderful in this film. I give this one two thumbs up for sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Rubbish Aug. 20 2001
By A Customer
This is an absolute stinker. Harrison Ford with a 1970's haircut in a 1940's film. The complete lack of basic attention to the realities of how the French Resistance was planned and run from England by the OSS completely overcomes some of the reasonable acting. I am tempted to say why let the truth get in the way of a good story but this is not even a good story.
I am afraid this falls into the category of films such as and U571 that paints a view of WW2 that the USA viewer would like to think actually happened but is sadly far from reality.
