Always, directed by Steven Spielberg, is a 1989 romantic drama starring Richard Dreyfuss as aerial firefighter Pete Sandich, and Holly Hunter as Dorinda Durston, Sandich's girlfriend, also a firefighter. Conflict ensues when Durston, who doubles as a dispatcher, is alarmed at Sandich's risk-taking behavior. His buddy Al Yackey, played by John Goodman, agrees, saying Sandich fights fires as if he's at war. Sandich is eventually convinced to take a safer job elsewhere but has to fly one last fire bombing mission first. Always is a remake of a 1940s war film, with some revisions to update the story line and setting, and a project discussed prior to its production, when Spielberg and Dreyfuss were working together on another film in 1974. While notable for its authentic aircraft detail and music by Spielberg's longtime collaborator John Williams, Always is perhaps most well known for being Audrey Hepburn's final film appearance in a cameo role.
