DAVID BOWIE’S MUSIC has played a huge part in so many people’s lives, but what about his film legacy?

Labyrinth, the 1986 cult Jim Henson film starred Bowie as Jarth, The Goblin King, and is one of those movies that stands out in the memories of so many eighties and nineties kids.


The film is memorable for its sinister storyline, Henson’s puppets and of course Bowie’s wonderful outfits and tunes.
