Like 1989, 1990 was another financially miserable year for the company with the sole bright spot coming at the end. Years of flops were catching up with the company and this would be their last full slate of films (three of which ended up on my worst of 1990 list). Let's take a look.
The only other interesting bit I could find on this is that it's one of the few later releases from Orion not released by their home video line. It was put out by Nelson Home Video (who also helped make it) for what it's worth. All of that one penny plus the lint in my pockets.
Regardless, the film is a very nicely shot epic with some decent work from Kevin Costner, Graham Greene and Mary McDonnell and while it's certainly not the best picture of the year, it is still a pretty good movie.
Even with the lone bright spot of Dances with Wolves, 1990 was an abysmal year for the studio. They would only have seven releases the next year and at the end of 1991, they would end up in bankruptcy. But that is a tale for another day.
