Dishart in J.M. Barrie's "The Little Minister" (1975); the bawdy Restoration comedy "The Country Wife" (1977) features Mirren and Anthony Andrews; Mirren and her co-stars play a group of children in the WWII English countryside in Dennis Potter's "Blue Remembered Hills" (1979); Mirren stars as "Mrs. Reinhardt" (1981), fleeing from her unhappy life with spouse Ralph Bates; and Ian Holm and Rupert Everett star alongside Mirren in the Cold War seriocomedy "Soft Targets" (1982). 13 1/2 hrs. total.
