Ep. 105 — LEGEND (1985)

IMG_1835-1.jpeg

This week, we're returning to one of the most dividing directors we've discussed on the show in a discussion of Ridley Scott and his nearly forgotten 1985 fantasy film LEGEND.

As always, we'll discuss the origins of the film and how Scott came up with the idea of filming a dark fairy tale to follow up BLADE RUNNER, but there's much more to the story of LEGEND than typical behind-the-scenes tidbits, with issues ranging from on set tragedies to significant changes being enacted by Universal Studios executives.

The film was a box office and critical failure upon release, but how does it hold up after three plus decades?
