Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows (Video)

Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows
Paul Jay, 1998, 93 min 36 s
In this feature-length documentary, director Paul Jay was given unprecedented access to the world of Bret Hart and pro wrestling as his camera followed Bret "the Hitman" Hart for one year. Going behind the tightly guarded walls of wrestling's spectacle and theatre, the film explores the meaning of today's wrestling morality plays. As fantasy crosses into real life, the true story of Bret Hart's struggle with Vince McMahon, the legendary owner of the WWF, is revealed. Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows climaxes with the tale of the biggest double-cross in pro wrestling.

I copped this on DVD a while back. It's a great wrestling documentary on one of the best to ever lace em up. If you've ever been a fan of wrestling, it's worth a viewing.

BTW-It kinda sucks that Owen Hart & Davey Boy Smith aren't around anymore.

I went to a monday raw in nashville and one guy had a sign that said ,"Vince killed Owen". They took his sign and kicked him out during the commercial break.

If this is the documentary I think it is then Bret punched Vince and knocks him out cold. Vince has some dame dash karma headed his way.

I was a big fan of Bret Hart back when he was rockin the pink and black. And you can't forget the sunglasses man.

Also, it was like watching an artist work the way he would finish opponents with his Sharpshooter.

Definitely, one of the greatest.
