The movie, "Flashdance", has been widely acknowledged as the first film ever to become a smash hit largely due to MTV. When it opened in the spring of 1983, it had a decent but modest $6 million+ weekend, but the soundtrack immediately became a best-seller. The film's music producers and credited artists like Irene Cara then worked very quickly to film videos for songs such as "What a Feeling" and "Maniac" to get them on MTV. The huge draw of MTV with younger viewers led to the film sustaining its audience well beyond what was then expected for films released outside of summer or winter holiday periods. The cycle of songs-videos continued for several months, resulting in the movie becoming a massive hit with over $90 million box office receipts.
