Hanover Street Poster Original USA international One Sheet 1979
USA Original International One Sheet Poster with John Alvin Artwork. Hanover Street is a 1979 American-British war and romantic film, written and directed by Peter Hyams (Capricorn One). The success of Capricorn One enabled Hyams to direct Hanover Street. The film was said to have been inspired by the 1940 film Waterloo Bridge and "other pictures of that ilk." Starring in the film was Harrison Ford, Lesley-Anne Down, Christopher Plummer, Shane Rimmer and Patsy Kensit. However, Kris Kristofferson was originally cast as the male lead in the film and Genevieve Bujold as the female lead. But Kristofferson dropped out of the film thus so did Bujold shortly afterwards. Harrison Ford, in Europe working on Force 10 from Navarone with Robert Shaw, was persuaded to take the lead role. Ford said he accepted the role "because I had never played a love scene in all my years in the movies.” The film has developed a following among romance film fans and aviation enthusiasts due to the flying sequences. Patsy Kensit (Lethal Weapon 2) was nominated for the Best Juvenile Actress in a Motion Picture award for 1980 from Young Artists Awards.
