'84' made it to the Big Screen when Anne Bancroft fell in love with the book and her producer husband Mel Brooks bought the film rights for her as a gift - Anne played Helene opposite Sir Anthony Hopkins' Frank. The film premiered in the UK to a royal audience - which resulted in Helene Hanff meeting Her Royal Highness, Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Some of my favourite photos from the film are included below. Like elsewhere on the site, click an image to view a larger version.
