Double Feature with THE STUNT MAN

(1982) dir Richard Benjamin w/Peter O’Toole, Mark Linn-Baker, Jessica Harper, Joseph Bologna, Bill Macy [92 min; 35mm]
Life is hell for low-man-on-the-totem-pole Benjy Stone (Linn-Baker) when he is assigned to babysit drunken Hollywood has-been Alan Swann (O’Toole) in advance of his appearance on a TV variety show. Set during the early days of television, MY FAVORITE YEAR features a poignant and spirited performance by O’Toole as the freewheeling Swann.
