1978, Warner Bros., 99 min, USA, Dir: Hal Needham

Top stuntman Burt Reynolds is on the verge of retirement when he finds himself challenged by newcomer Jan-Michael Vincent to attempt the riskiest, biggest stunt of his career - against the better judgment of girlfriend Sally Field. From its opening to its "blooper reel" credits (which were among the first used in film), HOOPER takes viewers on a wildly entertaining ride.
