Old v. Gold 111: Ladyhawke

Save Ferris … from the Middle Ages! Somewhere, sometime in Europe, Matthew Broderick is drawn into the cursed romance of Michelle Pfeiffer and Rutger Hauer in Richard Donner’s 1985 Ladyhawke.

Note: This movie is tough to locate for viewing, but iTunes, for one, has an old-style, non-widescreen video version available.

Did it strike anyone else as a little chintzy that this curse had been going on for two whole years?
