'GOOD MEN' IS EASY TO FIND

Posted on

Tom Cruise rakes in the ducats better than almost any other actor in Hollywood. With his latest blockbuster, The Firm, grossing $7.2 million on its first day in theaters, audiences met with sold-out shows apparently turned to the home remedy of video-namely, a newly released cassette of his last blockbuster, A Few Good Men. After only five days in stores, the tape had already nudged to No. 4. Even with Malcolm X and The Bodyguard in the next couple of weeks, A Few Good Men should have a healthy run atop the chart. Star power also rules among sports videos: Seven of the top 10 feature Michael Jordan, with his Air Time holding the No. 1 slot after more than four months on the chart.
