Directors Michael Mann and Ridley Scott have each developed a strong brand for themselves, so when you see their name on the marquee, you feel you know what to expect. But early in their careers, they both decided to take on a decidedly different kind of movie - the fairy tale - and while the results are a bit mixed, they are still fascinating, and MG argues that many of their directorial signatures were born in these offbeat films. Join us as we check out the full-on pixies-and-unicorns adventure of Scott's Legend, and the World War II mythic horror of Mann's The Keep!
