Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This 2-disc special edition couples a good transfer of the original film with a feature-length documentary in which director Richard Rush narrates "The Sinister Saga of the Making of The Stunt Man" -- which is well worth watching, for anyone wanting a glimpse into the history and internal politics of the Hollywood film industry. It also features more recent interviews with Rush, Peter O'Toole, Barbara Hershey, Steve Railsback and others involved in the production, which was clearly a labor of love for all of them.

The Stunt Man is unique in its seamless blend of action movie, comedy, drama and satire, and one of the best film treatments of the perennial theme of illusion and reality. Rush's direction is imaginative without being obtrusive, and the performances by Hershey, Railsback and especially O'Toole are superb. The story (co-written by Rush) is one of those that keeps you off balance when you see it for the first time -- is the fugitive stunt man's paranoia justified or not? -- and the script continues to delight on second and third viewing. This is one of the best films to come out of that period in the 1970s when Americans found they no longer had to go to an "art house" for innovative and original film fare. And it works almost as well today as it did then.

I would only point to two minor problems with this edition. First, it would have been nice to provide a version of the film that incorporates the deleted scene shown and discussed by Rush on disc 2. It's an excellent scene and would add something to the film as a whole, and the reasons it was cut (as given by Rush) are no longer salient. The other problem is with the packaging: Disc 1 of the first copy i received from Amazon had broken loose and banged around in the case so much that it was unplayable. It was promptly replaced by Amazon, and although disc 1 had also broken loose in the replacement copy, it played perfectly this time.

Format: DVD
Through this clever , ingenious script , the brilliant film maker Richard Rush (nominated as best director in 1980) made a emblematic and glorious film for those people who wante to taste something different . Built as a smart chines puzzle , a man suddenly in a location film and the delicate boundaries between the reality and the fiction are broken . Under this perspective the viewer is challenged moment by moment and obilgated to establish who is who and what is what . Think that you are in a mirror hall (Lady of Shangai's ending sequence) and try to find the object and not confuse with its image .
Link this premise with another two film made in the sixties (Blow up of Antonioni)and Belle de jour (Luis Buñuel) and more recently Parole des enfants (1995) Open you eyes (Alejandro Amenábar 1997) or The rules of engagement (William Friedkin 2000) and you'll be rewarded by that intelligent plot , loaded with thrills, chills, suspense , riddles and surprises , plus an outstanding cast: Peter O'Toole (nominated as best actor in 1980 for this performance) and Hershey .
I'm absolutely convinced since the moment you watch this film , it will become one of your timeless and favorites films.
The doubt for acquire this film never must prevail in your mind even for a second.

Format: DVD
this is a marvellous cult classic and has three fabulous performances in the vastly underrated barbara hershey and steve railsback.
of course the main thing here is o'toole. this and my favorite year were made close together and amounted to nothing less than a 'comeback' for the actor.
unfortunatley hollwood hasnt made such excellent use of o'toole since then but its a proud spot on this wonderful actors resume

Don't get me wrong. This is not a bad movie. It just doesn't compare to Citizen Kane in innovation. Really, some LA Times reporter wrote that! I guess I'm supposed to watch this numerous times, but it just wasn't that interesting to me. Where's the innovation? The crane?(Golly gee Cletus, I never seen a crane that big before) The reflected faces? The cliched lines of the Vietnam Vet? Then there is that quote that's always bandied about, "You're an actor playing a stuntman playing an actor..." I understand what he is saying, it's just not very pithy.
I kept waiting for the big suprise, the part of the movie that floored me. It never came. I wasn't drawn into an anti-reality, didn't see a dual reality and did not see any allegory. To some reviewers this is the greatest film ever. There's a guy at DVD Verdict who wrote that this film changed the way he looked at movies. I didn't see that. I watched a movie, that while good, was not thought provoking. I suppose I should watch it again, but it just didn't flip my minnow.
