The Stunt Man is tough to like, but easy to respect. Dominic Frontiere's carnival-like musical score sets up this nutcase and wildly unpredictable thriller about a fugitive (horror stalwart Steve Railsback) who poses as a stunt man on a movie set where the director (Peter O'Toole) enjoys torturing his actors—possibly even to the death if he gets a dynamite shot. Director Richard Rush's twisty tale earned three Oscar noms and a lot of enemies. (Afterward, Rush only ever made one other film, the bizarro Bruce Willis psychodrama Color of Night.) But Severin Films' spectacular new Blu-ray release showcases The Stunt Man's signature oddness: it's one of the most fascinating portraits of filmmaking—realistic or not—ever put on film. Boxoffice and Richard Rush sat down for a long, detailed interview about this curious classic and the rest of his quirky career from Freebie and the Bean to working with '80s-era Bruce Willis.
