A unique look at the world of stuntmen, perfect for Indy fans!

This is a neat little documentary, aired on television and released on
video. It is hosted by a bearded Harrison Ford who does some of his own
stunts in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Many of the stunts in the film are shown
and discussed at length.
Ford chats with other stuntmen on the set of Raiders of the Lost Ark, and
one point boasts that he has to work harder then real stuntmen, because he
has to stay in character during the stunts he performs. That aside, for most
of the documentary Ford stays in awe of the stuntmen, as probably most
viewers would be.
The documentary is rather fascinating and features plenty of insight into
the stunt world by not just the stuntmen, but Ford and even Steven
This documentary also takes a look at the history of movie stunts and shows
a few stunts dating back to the early days of motion pictures, and shows a
few frightening stunt mishaps.
While it is tough to find, I recommend it for anyone who is a Raiders of the
Lost Ark fan, or is interested in movie stunts.
