On this day in 1985 cult comedy film Fletch was released.

Loosely based on the novels of Gregory McDonald, originally Burt Reynolds and Mick Jagger were considered for the lead role but the author opted for Chevy Chase, despite never having seen the comedian before.

The film was a success with critics and at the box office and has developed a cult following over the years. It was followed by a sequel Fletch Lives (1989) and Chase himself declared that it was his favourite role of his career.
