The Comeback Trail is a 1982 film directed by Harry Hurwitz. It stars Chuck McCann and, in his final screen role, Buster Crabbe.

The film features several cameos of people playing themselves, such as Hugh Hefner, Henny Youngman and Irwin Corey.


Two down-on-their-luck film producers, Eastman and Kodac, decide to make a Western film with an old actor in hopes that he will die and they will collect the insurance money.
