Brewster McCloud spares practically nothing in contemporary society. Literate original screenplay is a sardonic fairy tale for the times, extremely well cast and directed.

Bud Cort heads the cast as a young boy, hiding in the depths of Houston’s mammoth Astrodome where he is building wings. He is, or is not, in reality a bird in human form.

His guardian angel is Sally Kellerman, always in the right spot to foil some nefarious person about to take advantage of Cort. Trouble is, her protection involves a series of unexplained murders.

Michael Murphy is the sleuth brought in from Frisco to help oldfashioned gumshoe G. Wood.

Kellerman, gets sensational results from her part. She can project more ladylike sensuality and emotion in a look than most actresses can in an hour.
