Whats stuntman Sonny Hoopers reaction when he learns the record for a fall is 223 feet? Ill go 224, he says. Burt Reynolds plays Hooper, at work on The Spy Who Laughed at Danger. His wife (Sally Field) hopes its his last film. The new stunt team member (Jan-Michael Vincent) prods him to try a risky rocket-car leap. Sonny intends to have the last laugh. The films a natural for Reynolds, who broke into movies doing stunts, and for director Hal Needham (Smokey and the Bandit, Stroker Ace). We created stunts that I once didnt believe possible, Needham says of this fond look at the men and women who risk their necks to make reel magic.
