I DVRed "Bird on a Wire" (1990) recently and watched it again this evening with my wife. It's plot includes the 1970s and now it is supposed to be 15 years later with Mel Gibson's character having been in the witness protection program while Goldie thought Mel's character had died in a plane crash in Mexico 15 years before. He obviously was the love of her life. It was a wonderful movie in 1990 and is still a wonderful movie today.
Bird on a Wire is a 1990 American action comedy film starring Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn, directed by John Badham, and shot mainly in British Columbia, Canada. The title refers to the Leonard Cohen song "Bird on the Wire". The alley motorcycle chase scene was filmed in Victoria, BC's Chinatown, in Fan Tan Alley.
