It must be just you etphonehomeyo, as I never thought she looked older than him at all, and certainly not 45. It's never revealed in the movie, but I think she was about 28, her husband was in his late 30s, their daughter was 8, and Harrison Ford's character was about 30. But I had never heard of this movie until early 1983, right after we got our first VCR and joined our first video store (which my mother ordered a VHS copy of it from). She did this because she was a big Harrison Ford fan, and she and my sister watched it a few times then, and I then watched it. They only liked it a little bit, but I immidiently liked it alot, and often watched it later in the 1980s and early 1990s. It got on my 100 favorite movies of all time list, and is the only World War II movie to be on it. That is somewhat suprising, since from 1981 on I have been a huge WWII buff (though I have always preferred the historical and documentary things on it to movies about it-that probably explains this). But I really liked the overall story, the scenes between them, and all the war related scenes. I also thought the mission scenes after he and her husband meet are very exciting, and the ending was very touching. I hope to see this movie again soon if it is out on DVD, and look foward to it.
