PAPERBACK HERO dvd
(aka Last of the Big Guns)
DIRECTOR: Peter Pearson
STARS: Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey), Elizabeth Ashley (92 in the Shade), John Beck (Rollerball), Dayle Haddon (Spermula)
SYNOPSIS: "2001: A Space Odyssey" star Keir Dullea is a small town hockey star in modern day (for 1973) Saskatchewan, Canada. He's spends his time bedding down women, playing hockey, getting into fights and tearing up the streets in his sports car. But his biggest oddball quirk is that he pretends he's a real life old time cowboy complete with gun. After all of his (mostly) harmless hijinx things get dark when the hockey team's owner calls it quits. Then Dullea's fantasy & reality worlds gets blurred. You also get a fully nude shower scene with Dullea and Elizabeth Ashley. An interesting, and very rare, Canadian drama.
