Let’s go back to 1986, with Billy Crystal and the late, great, talented Gregory Hines in another classic movie filmed in Chicago
Billy Crystal was on a roll. The movie also starred actors who’d go on to huge careers including Jimmy Smits, Joe Pantoliano (who was no stranger to filming in Chicago since “Risky Business”), Steven Bauuer was coming off of “Scarface” and “Thief Of Hearts” and more.
The Running Scared soundtrack was released in conjunction with the movie and contained a mix of songs and music featured in the film.
The album sold well and produced three top 15 hits with performances by Klymaxx (Man Sized Love), Michael McDonald (Sweet Freedom) and more produced by Rod Temperton, the mastermind behind the group Heatwave (Always & Forever, Groove Line, Boogie Night) and the man who wrote massive hits for artists including Michael Jackson for his Thriller album.
The movie grossed over 38 million dollars at the box office.
