Sinister Saga of Making The Stunt Man
In honor of the DVD release of the 1980 cult film The Stunt Man, director Richard Rush recounts the trials and tribulations he confronted while making that much praised film. Speaking from a variety of quirky settings including his private plane and a UCLA sculpture garden, he openly admits that he borrowed elements from Francois Truffaut's Day for Night (1973) and Arthur Penn's Night Moves (1975). He also gleefully delves into the film's intentional blurring of reality and fiction. Stars Peter O'Toole and Barbara Hershey also appear.
