Description by

Chuck, a movie theater projectionist bored with his life fantasizes that he is one of the superheroes in the movies he shows in the theater. He envisions himself as "Captain Flash," and daydreams into the world of movies, where he summons the help of screen heroes such as Gary Cooper, Errol Flynn and Humphrey Bogart in his fight against The Bat, his evil nemesis. Chuck McCann, as Chuck/Captain Flash, is superb as he mixes physical comedy and surprising tenderness. Rodney Dangerfield, making his film debut, is the slimy, miserly, mean Theater Manager/The Bat. Written and directed by Harry Hurwitz, The Projectionist has been carefully preserved and newly restored by the New York Museum of Modern Art.

Product Description:

An imaginative comedy about a mundane projectionist who daydreams that he is a world-famous superhero. Rodney Dangerfield, in his first film role, costars as the stingy, bitter owner of the movie theatre. Many well-known film stars make cameo appearances.
