In the latest episode, of the Film Freaks Forever podcast, we discuss the fascinating phenomenon of movies that bombed at the box office on their initial release and then later found adoring audiences and now are acclaimed classics. Films from “The Princess Bride” to “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Brazil” to “Heathers” have suffered this way. Phoef Sutton and Mark Jordan Legan focus on four films that are now beloved classics that certainly laid a box office egg back in the day. These films cover the 1930s, the 1950s, and then a fascinating year in cinema, 1999.
