All I care is that the singing telegram led me to Madeline Kahn with the infamous hate monologue, and which then led me to her with Grover on her lap, and that's all I needed:http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=fvwp&v=hsCOTsE4atQ" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100" height="100
Communism was just a red herring.
First thing that popped into my head. And Matt, did it have the multiple endings in the theaters, or one ending, but you didn't know which one you were going to get?
IIRC, different theatres had different endings, and they advertised "Ending A at these theatres, Ending B at these theatres..." in the hopes of juicing repeat viewing (it didn't work).
To be fair, it's a Tim Curry movie. By definition, no one saw it first run in theaters.
Ahem. Saw ending A in the theater, and then went back to see ending C (which is the best). Love, love, love, Clue The Movie.
I did see it in the theaters. My excuse is that it was before the Internet and even before Borders, so it was either that or buy a Garfield book at B. Dalton's. Frankly, I think they should've stopped making board-game movies; they could never top "Twister."
