Due to limited marketing, the film was not a big hit at the box office. Because of this, no soundtrack album was ever released. However, in 2018, after 33 years of requests - a third of a century - a limited special edition soundtrack CD was released. It contained 18 tracks plus a 20-page booklet. See more »

Are you OK? You seem tense.
Oh, no, no, no, I'm not, I'm not tense. Well, I did pass out today... and got hit in the head by a baseball... and brushed my teeth with shampoo... then butchered Rimsky- Korsakov in front of 1,500 people, and my clothes fell apart. But I'm not *tense*.

The video version in 1986 was cut by 5 seconds in order to receive a "PG" rating from the BBFC with edits made to shots of workmen sniffing white powder from a cocaine-covered car during the opening sequence. In 2004 all cuts were reinstated and the video was re-rated "15". See more »
Thank god the 80s are gone - movies may not seem like the deepest arts medium at the moment, but gone are the days where a single star could walk his way around a movie so badly flung together, and think it clever.
THE MAN WITH ONE RED SHOE is neither entertaining nor awful - it is the film equivalent of dry bread - boring but not entirely unpleasant. Tom Hanks shows little of what he was going to be capable of, and the supporting cast (including a dreadful turn by Carrie Fisher) look lost and uninterested. Say no to non-films - buy some jam!!
