Coleridge wrote: "In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure-dome decree- Where Alph, the sacred river, ran through caverns measureless to man down to a sunless sea." So where did the film go wrong? The plot of the 1980 movie of Xanadu is roughly that Olivia Newton John is some kind of Disco-Goddess sent to Earth to help Gene Kelly open a roller disco, with the help of a soundtrack from The Electric Light Orchestra. Other films released in 1980 included The Empire Strikes Back, The Blues Brothers, The Shining, Airplane!,The Long Good Friday and Raging Bull. "Hey kids, who wants to go and see Xanadu? Oh."
