I just saw most of a 1979 film called "Hanover Street" on the tele today. It starred Christopher Plummer (from Sound of Music) and Harrison Ford (from Star Wars and Indiana Jones). It was exciting, with some action and had a nice romance them to it. Ended a bit Cheesy, though. But really reminded me of Casablanca a bit and got me wondering, why had I never heard of this film before. What makes a god film (or great film). Ordo so many good films not just get nominated for any awards? I think great films having characters (and actors/resses) that draw you towards them (as if you could be there) and I think great films have a plot that has some surprise along the way (whether obvious or not). Other thoughts?
