Re: Helene Hanff: 84 Charing Cross Road
Flower, you are right. I saw the film a number of years ago, and Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft play the two leads. The movie was actually based on both Helene Hanff's book and the play adapted from the book.
Your enthusiasm for 84 Charing Cross Road is inspirational, M. I'm quite certain Hanff's book is even better than the film adaptation, which, I might add, I deeply cherished.
