John Schlesinger directs the war romance Yanks, based on the story by Colin Welland. Set in England at the end of WWII, the story concerns three American GIs and their affairs with British women of varying social status. The central romance concerns Sgt. Matt Dyson and Jean Moreton, who is the daughter of shopkeepers. He falls in love with her but she is still infatuated with her boyfriend Ken. Higher up on the class scale, the officer John has a brief extramarital affair with socialite Helen. The third pairing involves Sgt. Danny Ruffelo in a fling with Mollie. Eventually, the Americans and the Britains find themselves surrounded by racism at a New Year’s Eve dance. Annie Ross from the vocal jazz group Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross appears briefly as a Red Cross nurse. Yanks won two BAFTA awards in 1980: to Shirley Russell for Best Costume Design and to Rachel Roberts for Best Supporting Actress.
