Director Peter Bogdanovich pays tribute to the early days of filmmaking with this comedy about a young attorney -- Leo Harrigan (Ryan O'Neal) -- who stumbles into the movie business after meeting a producer. Before long, Harrigan and his band of actors and crew are cranking out one silent picture after another in a sleepy desert town. Burt Reynolds plays Harrigan's crass leading man, and Stella Stevens co-stars as a silent-screen vamp.
