Movie Info

In the silent-film era, attorney Leo Harrigan (Ryan O'Neal) and gunslinger Buck Greenway (Burt Reynolds) are hired to stop an illegal film production. However, Leo and Buck soon team up with the filmmakers and become important players in the show business industry. Leo learns he has a talent for directing, and Buck's cowboy persona quickly earns him leading-man status -- but both men fall for beautiful starlet Kathleen Cooke (Jane Hitchcock), leading to a heated personal rivalry.

  • Peter Bogdanovich's film is an okay comedy-drama about the early days of motion pictures.

  • Bogdanovich is trying to do an interesting and commendable thing in dramatizing aesthetic passion; his failure is as noble as it is conspicuous.

    August 17, 2010 | Full Review…
  • The direction is agonisingly pedantic for a comedy, and leaves O'Neal and Reynolds totally exposed, mugging away in charmless and clumsy fashion.

  • Peter Bogdanovich knows a great deal about movies, including how they are made. Perhaps he doesn't know why they are made. In any case, knowing how something is made isn't the same as making it.

    August 17, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • We're reminded that Orson Welles described a movie studio as the biggest electric train a kid could ever get. Bogdanovich doesn't let us play with his train. Instead, he keeps us on the outside of a curiously flat movie.

    August 17, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The characters are over-the-top and caricatures of actors acting; it's stylish but silly and wears thin a little too quickly.

    I caught the ending of this movie on TV, I'd been wanting to see it for some time, and I liked it, but I really want to see the rest of the movie.

    Griffin's first and last film. He had talent and looks and gives a great performance, in this offbeat, magical film. Unfortunately, getting stoned and drunk and then decapitating Coppola's son in a speed boat crash is a sure career killer.
