Release: December 15, 1985

Legend is a 1985 fantasy film released by 20th Century Fox (in Europe) and Universal Pictures (in the U.S. and Canada), directed by Ridley Scott and starring Tom Cruise, Mia Sara, Tim Curry, and Billy Barty. The story is set "once, long ago" in a world of unicorns, princesses, fairies, and demons. Cruise plays Jack O' The Green, a woodland dweller who takes Princess Lily (Sara) to see the last of the living unicorns. But temptation and fate cause the world to freeze over when one of the unicorns is killed and its horn stolen, and Lily is kidnapped by evil goblins. Ultimately, it is Jack (with the help of a group of fairies) who must save Lily from the Satan-like demonic Lord of Darkness (Curry), who wants to take Lily as his bride. Jack and the fairies overcome all obstacles to reach the Tree Of Darkness (where Lily is held hostage) and conquer the demonic Lord before the world enters a never-ending Age Of Darkness.
