Stunt men doing stunts in Hollywood
7 November 2003 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

This is a rather light tale of a Hollywood stuntman that falls in love with a big name actress and still wants to pursue his risky career. The little women gives him a choice-the stunts or her. He chooses the stunts and still manages to get her. A nice inside look at how Hollywood wanted the public to think the movies were made, circa 1940.
