Description
In this independent film from 1971, a sad-sack projectionist (Chuck McCann) who is bored with his quotidian existence fantasizes about being one of the heroes he sees onscreen. As Captain Flash, he joins up with such Hollywood heroes as Errol Flynn, Sergeant York, and Flash Gordon to quash the forces of Fascism. In his debut role, Rodney Dangerfield plays his nemesis, the theatre manager (a.k.a. "The Bat").

"Anyone with a fondness for Hollywood will find much to enjoy: trailers for The Terrible World of Tomorrow, the Judeo-Christian Good-Guy kit, impersonations of Bogart, Wayne and Greenstreet."—Time Out, UK

"Long before Zelig, The Purple Rose of Cairo, and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, there was The Projectionist, an innovative low-budget oddity with a cult following. McCann plays the title character, a lovable nebbish who sees himself as part of every movie he's ever seen, including newsreels…. When he meets [Ina] Balin, she immediately becomes part of his cinematic fantasy, cast as an imperiled Pauline whom McCann must save with regularity from the clutches of Dangerfield. McCann's mind movies feature archival footage from Casablanca, Gunga Din, Dames, Fort Apache, The Birth of a Nation, and many other Hollywood classics."—TV Guide
