Hanover Street [1979 feature film]

Despite appearances, the throughfare of the title in which US bomber pilot Harrison Ford meets nurse Leslye-Anne Down was entirely a set built on the back-lot at Elstree Studios.  Production designer Philip Harrison excelled at creating an authentic London Street in 1943, which would - of course - not be complete without it's own Leslie Green-style Piccadilly line "Hanover Street" Underground station.  In actual fact, of course, the real Hanover Street is closer to the route of the Central line than the Piccadilly.
