Since hitting our screens in 1983, The A-Team has become an international phenomenon - so much so that in some countries, it has never stopped airing. Following a group of ex-United States Army Special Forces soldiers who, near the end of the Vietnam War, were arrested for a crime they did not commit. After they escaped from military prison and form the four-man crack commando unit, using their military training to fight oppression or injustice. But what of the men behind the legends? Did they get to live their happy endings in love?
Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith is the brains of the outfit. A man who thrives on the adventure and rush of life-threatening situations. Always the smartest man in the room, he's renowned for being cool under pressure and able to come out with witty one-liners when needed. He always has his trademark cigar, and really loved the phrase "I love it when a plan comes together," Hannibal was played by George Peppard, who was already a familiar face in entertainment by the time he joined the cast of The A-Team. In 1961, he had a starring role in Breakfast at Tiffany's, alongside Audrey Hepburn. Yet when it came to matters of the heart, George was both lucky with the ladies, and seemingly unlucky in love. Definitely a bit of a ladies man - he was married a grand total of five times.
