“When the romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally was released in July 1989, it made just $1.1 million during its opening weekend,” writes N.Y. Times staffer Laura Holson. “But Alan F. Horn, whose film company produced the movie, was confident that, given time, it could be a hit. He was right. The movie earned $93 million at the domestic box office that summer. ‘If it was today, the headline in Variety would have been When Harry Met Disaster,’ Mr. Horn said in an interview. ‘They would have killed us after that first weekend and I don√ɬ¢√¢‚Äö¬¨√¢‚Äû¬¢t think we would have had a chance to build that movie. In today√ɬ¢√¢‚Äö¬¨√¢‚Äû¬¢s climate it wouldn√ɬ¢√¢‚Äö¬¨√¢‚Äû¬¢t have had a chance to breathe.'”
