Our Kickstarter backers made Magic happen!

It wasn’t magic that got Olivia Newton-John her role in Xanadu; it was the success she found with John Travolta in Grease.  However it seems the muse of the case and crew of Xanadu was taking a day off.  This film about a roller skating disco club and a Greek goddess who makes it happen not only bombed at the box office but it inspired the famous Raspberry bad movie awards.  Yet the film has found some fans, and scored Newton-John two more hit singles from the soundtrack.  How does Xanadu fare 35 years after release?  Thanks to your pledge to the Now Playing Kickstarter campaign you can listen and find out!

This podcast is not available for general download. It was made as a “thank you” reward for supporters of Now Playing Podcast’s Kickstarter campaign to publish the book: Underrated Movies We Recommend.
