STUNT MAN, THE
Richard Rush's Academy Award® nominated cult masterwork, The Stunt Man is a no-holds-barred thrill-ride into the lofty world of action cinema. Considered by critics as a classic of it's genre, The Stunt Man is a subversive and explosive journey into the machine of Hollywood movie making.
Academy Award® nominee Peter O'Toole (Lawrence of Arabia) stars as megalomaniacal director Eli Cross, in charge of a big budget action movie where the emphasis is on the action! Enter young fugitive and neophyte stunt man, Cameron (Steve Railsback) who is given the job of a lifetime if only he can survive the first day of filming. In exchange for keeping him hidden away from the authorities, Cameron agrees to replace Cross's deceased stunt man and undertake some of the most insanely staged, death-defying stunts in the history of cinema - all for the benefit of his director's single-minded vision.
Distracted along the way by his beautiful leading lady Nina Franklin (Academy Award® nominee Barbara Hershey, Beaches) Cameron is thrust into the spotlight and ready to risk it all or at least die trying in the name of becoming the ultimate stunt man.
