Why is one movie a huge, smashing success while another is an equally huge and spectacular flop? Even when they both have the same director or producer? Former studio executive, and now editor in chief of Variety, Peter Bart analyzes the success of films like "Lord of the Rings," "Psycho," "American Graffiti," "The Blair Witch Project," and TV shows like "I Love Lucy" and "CSI." His book is called "Boffo!"
