Double Feature with MY FAVORITE YEAR.

(1980) dir Richard Rush w/Peter O’Toole, Steve Railsback, Barbara Hershey [131 min; 35mm]
Cameron (Railsback), a Vietnam vet on the run from the police, hides out on a movie set but is soon spotted by the egomaniacal director Eli Cross (O’Toole). Coerced by Cross into becoming a stunt man on the film, Cameron finds himself in over his head and forced to perform ever more dangerous stunts – all the while developing feelings for the leading lady (Hershey).
