An absolute must-see!
11 October 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This fifth episode of the brilliant and amazingly thorough by Kevin Brownlow and David Gill is wonderful because unlike many documentaries on filmmaking, it takes the time to commend important but often unsung geniuses--the stuntmen who make many scenes possible. Two things I loved about the film were all the wonderful stories by the stuntmen and I ADORED hearing how the stunts were done. In particular, hearing about how Harold Lloyd actually did NOT do much of his famous climbing in "Safety Last" as well as how they made the stunts much safer than they looked--that really impressed me (and is mentioned again later in one of Brownlow and Gill's other documentaries, "Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius". It was also shocking hearing how cavalier many filmmakers were towards their extras and stunt folks. Well worth seeing and truly exciting.
