The true to life story of one of Hollywood's top stuntmen, as well as some of the most spectacular stunts ever filmed. "Fall Guy" follows the life and times of legendary stunt man and director, John Stewart.
In 1969, the rock band Sweetwater led by lead singer Nansi Nevins opened Woodstock and subsequently received considerable media attention, appearing on a number of television shows. However, just as they appeared to be receiving a really lucky break, they just disappeared. Thirty years later, a cable television reporter for MIX-TV, a musical station, is removed from her show because of being stoned on the air. Her station gives her a choice of being dismissed or investigating what happened to Sweetwater. A blending of modern day fiction and past fact is then blended in this biographical story. Written by

The band is shown playing a Love-in in 1967. The PA system is a modern style that didn't exist at the time. Wedge monitor speakers were virtually non-existent. The Shure SM-58 microphone hadn't been introduced yet, though similar Shure microphones were in common usage. Marshall amplifiers were quite rare, expensive and hard to get. A band like Sweetwater would have used Fender, Vox or Standell amps. The microphones used at Woodstock were Shure SM 56 models, not the SM 58 models used in the film. See more »

When I first heard of this movie coming on VH1 my instinct was ok it look OK...well the thing that made me want to watch was that i'm a big fan of Amy Jo Johnson...i thought why not...So i taped it because I was going to be out that night...the next day i sat down to watch it...I was taken aback...the music was great and the story was heartwrenching...to think that a band as cool, great and completely ahead of their time could be completely demolished because of one tragic accident...the acting was great and the story was told with dignity and grace about the tragic rise and fall of this great band...After this movie i've seached the internet for sites on Sweetwater and for Albums that i could purchase or bid on...so far i haven't found much...but i always have the movie to remind me of this legendary band.
