Movie Fact #905 – December 3rd, 2015:

The 1960 Italian film “L’Avventura” (English: “The Adventure”) is considered one of the greatest films of all time yet, at the time of its premiere at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival, itwas booed so much to the extent that director Michelangelo Antonioni and lead actress Monica Vitti, who played the lead character Claudia, fled the theater.

No surprise, after the second screening there was a complete turn around in how it was perceived and it was awarded the Special Jury Prize, going on to become a landmark of European cinema.

Never count a movie out till the decades have passed and the generations have decided a movies worth…although sometimes they catch on faster than you think.
