Summer Movies of 1981

Starlog's recap of how the summer movies of 81 did.  The big winners were Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman II, Cannonball Run, For Your Eyes Only, Four Seasons, Clash of the Titans, Tarzan the Ape Man, and a re-release of The Empire Strikes Back.

The big losers that year were The Great Muppet Caper, Dragonslayer, Honky Tonk Freeway, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, Blow Out, Condorman, and Zorro the Gay Blade.  A couple of those have gone on to become classics, and Zorro is kind of a cult classic.

Escape From New York and An American Werewolf in London also get mentions.
