Few damsels in distress are completely helpless. Indeed, Lili (Mia Sara) may seem that way after she is captured by the forces of Darkness (Tim Curry), but her agreeing to help kill a unicorn in Ridley Scott’s fantasy epic Legend is merely a ruse to allow the creature to escape. Trusting her the whole time is Jack (Tom Cruise), the boy who loves her and goes in search of her after learning that Darkness plans to use the death of the unicorn to bring about a perpetual night upon the world so that he can roam the world uninhibited by killing daylight.
