Audience Reviews for Hanover Street

Action director Peter Hyams is out of his element with this melodramatic World War II drama, which consists mostly of an unlikely tryst between American soldier and British nurse. But I'm a fan of Harrison Ford as he was quite a hero in this late 1970's film.

Super Reviewer

WWII romance that plays like a Mills and Boon novel. Ford and Down make a very handsome couple though, and the stiff upper-lipped derring do behind enemy lines is efficiently handled.
