In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the movie where Tom Cruise launched his production company, and the film that made Meryl Streep an action hero.

Mission: Impossible was a film whose script hadn’t come together even as shooting had begun – and the ending in particular was proving to be a problem.

The River Wild‘s script was more straightforward, but shooting the action was anything but – and then ther was the challenge of selling Meryl Streep as an action hero.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
