I wish I knew more about some of the stuntmen who did some of the stunts performed in Spaghettis. They are kind of the unsung heros of the genre.
Recently I saw a stunt that made want to start this topic.
In Sartana Kills Them All George Martin shoots a guy that is standing on a second story balcony. The camera shot is from Martin’s boot level as he looks up to the falling stuntman. The stuntman does an end-over-end fall and lands face first right on top of the camera lens. Oh, that had to hurt.
Does anybody remember the fall Fabio Testi makes after being shot by Henry Fonda (“times flies”) in Once Upon A Time In The West? God, it hurts just to watch. I can’t believe he did not break his back! :’(
