Comedy = Tragedy + Distance

To say that The Conqueror
, the Howard Hughes-backed film about Ghengis Kahn
with John Wayne as the lead, is an awful film is somewhat of an understatement. Bad acting in the hot Nevada desert surrounded by radiation from the Yucca Flats lead to around 90 people getting cancer and 30 dying from it. They even shipped radioactive sand back to Hollywood for extra scenes. Lost in La Mancha
doesn't seem so bad in retrospect.
