Tim Curry, Lesley Ann Warren & Rest of 'Clue' Cast 35 Years after the Cult Movie's Release

Despite its poor reception at the time of its theatrical release, the film based on the popular board game went on to grow a big cult following that returned it to its rightful place in American cinema history.

The perfect mixture of comedy and mystery, the film “Clue,” released in 1985, featured a deluxe ensemble cast made out of some of the most brilliant comedy actors and actresses from different generations.

With the news of an upcoming remake of the film, starring Ryan Reynolds, being in the works, the interest about the original movie has been revived, and what better occasion to know what went on in the careers of the film’s amazing cast.
