Editor's Note
An escaped convict accidentally destroys a stunt shot while a movie is being filmed. When the driver dies in the subsequent car crash, the director of the film decides to quickly replace the driver with the convict, thus saving them both from the police and setting up explosive dramatic ironies between the real world and the illusory world of film-making. O'Toole is brilliant in this brilliant film. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Director, Best Actor--Peter O'Toole, Best (Adapted) Screenplay.

Eventually Cameron starts to believe that Eli is out to kill him for the sake of a once in a lifetime stunt.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"The gamesmanship of THE STUNT MAN is fast and furious....[O'Toole delivers lines] magnificently..." 10/17/1980 p.C6

USA Today
"Director Richard Rush's unique moviemaking saga is one of the consummate screen treats of its day..." 11/23/2001 p.8E

Entertainment Weekly
"...Director Richard Rush's reissued cult fave is both a paranoia film and a Hollywood satire, each element reinforcing the other in an antic show of gamesmanship..." 11/16/2001 p.154

Sight and Sound
"...Occasionally inspired....Distinctive..." 04/03/2003 p.61

Wall Street Journal
"[A] sensationally original film....The structure is trompe l'oeil -- what's reality, what's illusion -- and the dominant mood is paranoia..." 06/10/2011
