In this episode, two films with very different levels of studio expectation.
Much was resting on RoboCop 2 being a huge success, but it didn't bode well when it got its final director just days before filming began. And the studio was very hands on.
Drop Dead Gorgeous was a much lower-budget project, with a writer and director who didn't really click. Plus, its studio had a little panic about it very late in the day.
