1998: The Coen Brothers' comedy "The Big Lebowski," starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore and John Turturro, premieres in theaters. The film, about a case of mistaken identity between an unemployed Los Angeles slacker known as "The Dude" and a millionaire who share the same name, struggled at the box office, but became a cult favorite over time.
