Robert Greenwald

TV director and political documentarian who occasionally does theatrical movies.

Indifferent Xanadu (1980) -- The story of a muse who comes out of a wall to help Gene Kelly start a roller rink.  Seriously.  Almost as bad as everyone says it is, though enjoyable on certain levels.  The thing that saves it somewhat is that much of the music in the movie is great, featuring Electric Light Orchestra and of course Olivia Newton-John, including "Magic," "Suddenly," and "Xanadu," but I'd suggest listening to these on a Newton-John greatest hits CD rather than watching the movie.
