Haven't read this yet but remember enjoying the movie when it came out in 1982 in theaters.

Question: since you skipped over Popeye (1980) and Dragonslayer (1981) I am guessing you are not covering them. I realize they were co-productions with Paramount but two more examples of Ron Miller striving to make the studio's movies relevant again. IMHO, Popeye was a mixed bag but Dragonslayer was an underrated gem that is needlessly forgotten these days.

Love your blog!
