To think that the IMDB’s number one movie of all time was a flop at the box office is unthinkable. Shawshank had a very slow start, but it gained speed over some years and set the bar pretty high for quality movies.
Jane Fonda will always be remembered for her role as the futuristic female heroine in Barbarella. On the US circuit is didn’t do great, but people in Europe loved it. Fonda’s seductive outfits became iconic after the movie and ensured that the movie would rise to success.
