1983 Films

Perhaps the biggest film event of 1983 was the release of Episode VI of the original Star Wars trilogy, Return of the Jedi. It was, by a long shot, the most successful film in terms of box office income. The second placed film on this basis, Terms of Endearment, scooped four of the Oscars – Best Film, Best Director (James L. Brooks), Best Actress (Shirley MacLaine) and Best Supporting Actor (Jack Nicholson).

Anyway, here is the full list of the top ten grossing films in the UK for 1983:

Star Wars: Return of The Jedi
Octopussy
Never Say Never Again
Superman III
An Officer and a Gentleman
Tootsie
Staying Alive
Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life
Airplane! II: The Sequel
Flashdance
