Fascinating history from the Keystone Cops on: Stunt flyers, rodeo riders, and the all-round athletes like Douglas Fairbanks. A host of improbable characters and anecdotes; development of stunting techniques. Entertaining insights into a private corner of the film world, where the tragedies were often hushed up.   "Cowboys, rodeo riders; lifeguards, lumberjacks; acrobats, airmen; barnstormers, contortionists -- from the ranks of these grew Hollywood's strange yet elite community of stunt men and women. From the violent slapstick of the Keystone Kops, through the gags of Buster Keaton and the athletic leaps of Douglas Fairbanks Snr, to the sophisticated thrills of "Bullitt" and "The French Connection", stunts and stunt men have had a unique -- and hitherto well-camouflages -- place in the history of Hollywood." -- from the back of the dust jacket. Based on first-hand interviews. Unusual illustrations, many from private archives.
