MPAA Rating: PG

Robert Forster delivers a well-turned performance as a professional stuntman in this Hawksian murder mystery. Forster is Glen Wilson, an ace stuntman who travels from movie set to movie set, performing dangerous professional work. Fiona Lewis is B.J. Parswell, a journalist whose presence creates dissension within the ranks of this all-male group. She turns into an admirer of Glen’s skill and then, later, his lover. Pressure increases when Glen’s brother, also a stuntman, is killed on an oceanfront movie set in San Luis Obispo. The producer, Blake thinks it is an accident, but Glen suspects foul play. Glen wants to take the place of his brother, telling the producer that he wants to finish his deceased brother’s stuntwork. Actually, he wants to more fully investigate his brother’s death by snooping around the movie set. The producer is reluctant, but Glen’s old stuntmen pals — Paul, Chuck, and Patti — insist on Glen being hired. Glen proves his mettle, performing a series of dangerous stunts. Along the way he discovers that his brother had been sleeping with Judy, Blake’s nymphomaniac wife. Glen then suspects Blake might be responsible for his brother’s death. After more unexplained “accidents” on the set, Glen is sure that the killer is after him and determines to find him and stop him before he kills again.
