hat a wizardly weird piece of work. Vietnam vet and fugitive (Cameron; Steve Railsback) stumbles onto a set of a World War I epic and passes himself off as a stunt man to escape capture. Problem one: the movie director Eli Cross (Peter O’Toole) is mad, or nearly. Problem two: Cameron falls for Nina Franklin (Barbara Hershey), the leading lady. Director Richard Rush has stacked the deck. He’s made a movie about poseurs by inserting a poseur. He’s made a movie about justice by making director Cross — who learns Cameron’s secret — into an avenging angel. Old questions: what’s fake, what not? Where do fictional and “actual” penalties intersect? A massively flawed, massively ambitious movie that snacks on O’Toole’s outrageous hamming.
