A Rare (at the time) Tribute to Stunts!
21 August 2010 | by (McDonough, GA) – See all my reviews

This special not only had interviews with stunt people, they used several stunt people, including a pioneer of stunt work, Yakima Canutt, who, at his advanced age, took a fall over a car hood. The stunts they shot were for a movie conceived for the TV special and they called it "P.D. Doyle". They showed all sorts of stunts and Lee Marvin himself got into the act. As "Doyle" he is standing on a street, a motorcycle with a sidecar comes up behind him and he falls into the sidecar. After showing how the stunts were done, the scenes were run in movie order.

It was the only TV show I had ever seen that was dedicated to stunts and I thought it was wonderful. I can even remember a bit of the theme song, "He's a stunt man/Knowing where he lands..."

I don't recall if the legendary performer Dar Robinson was in it, but I do remember that he was married for a time to a woman named Darlette!

I have not seen it, but apparently there was a sequel, "Superstunt 2"
