Hanover Street Movie Online
In London during the Second World War, Lieutenant David Halloran (Harrison Ford), an American, B-25 bomber pilot, with the Eighth Air Force based in the United Kingdom, and Margaret Sellinger (Lesley-Anne Down) a British nurse, meet on Hanover Street in a chance encounter during the Blitz. The following day, Halloran's squadron is sent to bomb Rouen. The plane's starboard engine is hit, but the fire is put out. Cimino (Richard Masur), the bombardier, begs Halloran to let him drop the bombs early and turn back, but Halloran does not care about the danger and orders him to wait until they are over the target, prompting him to angrily exclaim that he hates Halloran. They meet again two weeks later in a secret assignation on Hanover Street. Although she is married, Sellinger and Halloran rapidly fall in love. She tries to resist, but is drawn to the charismatic American. By contrast her husband Paul Sellinger (Christopher Plummer) is, by his own description, suave, pleasant, but fairly dull. A former teacher, he is now a trusted member of British intelligence. During the next few missions, Halloran orders Cimino to drop the bombs early, as he is scared of death because he now has "a reason to live", much to Hyer (Michael Sacks), the co-pilot's anger and disappointment. Weeks later, before take-off, Halloran hears something odd in the engine and turns back, forcing Patman to go in his place. That night, it's revealed that Patman's plane was hit in the bomb bay with the bombs still on the plane, killing all on board, and that if it wasn't for that engine, it would've been Halloran. Ashamed of his actions, Halloran volunteers for an undercover mission in Nazi-occupied France to deliver a British agent (Lieutenant Wells). At the last moment, Sellinger takes the place of the agent, and himself joins the mission. His reasons are initially unclear, but he slowly reveals that he wants to prove himself.
