I have to admit I was never very impressed by fantasy films made in the 80’s, not since I was forced to watch “Clash of the Titans” with my classmates so the teachers could go out for a smoke or something. The special effects were pretty dreadful. I kept expecting to see a giant hand swooping into the screen to straighten out the creatures that were bent unnaturally at the waist. So when it was pressed upon me to view “Legend” starring Tom Cruise so I could create a set of the main characters, I hemmed and hawed but finally agreed only because A. it was made during a pre-Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah’s couch era, B. two words: Tim Curry and C. Unicorns!
It was a fun movie. I got all nostalgic thinking about “The Neverending Story” and “The Dark Crystal”. I got around to thinking that maybe I didn’t hate 80’s fantasy films after all, just “Clash of the Titans.”

As this is a set of fours, I decided to hide a little surprise inside the Oona doll for the buyer:
It’s a itty bitty unicorn horn!
