This Week in 1986: 'Legend' Seeks Fairytale Ending

Was 'Legend' cursed or blessed? The Tom Cruise fantasy epic was fraught with production disasters, was drastically recut before its American release (25 years ago this week, on April 18, 1986) and, after all the tinkering and second-guessing, was still a big commercial flop. So it's a minor miracle that the film got released at all, that it did not kill the careers of rising star Cruise or director Ridley Scott and that the generically-titled movie is still fondly remembered today by a cult of fans for its classic fairytale plot (involving unicorns, sprites, elves and goblins) and its stunning visuals.
