    SHAMUS - 1973

    SHAMUS - 1973

    Burt is back and so is his moustache. This time he's under the watchful eye of stunt coordinator GLENN WILDER who provides a fine selection of action in this thriller.
    Burt is...well, Burt as usual and delivers on the action front as you'd expect.

    If you haven't seen the film now's your chance. Its available on YouTube if you don't fancy forking out a few quid to buy it on DVD or Betamax......if you don't know what that means....Google it.

    IN LIKE & OUR MAN FLINT - 1966/1967

    IN LIKE & OUR MAN FLINT - 1966/1967

    Another excellent example of a spy movie boosted by the Bond movies.

    James Coburn takes the role of Derek Flint and runs with it over these two movies.

    Stunt Coordinator is BUZZ HENRY who is also Coburn's  leading double on the pictures. The action is based around fights and falls and its huge fun to watch. If you haven't seen either of the films I urge you to do so.

    THE FRENCH CONNECTION - 1971

    THE FRENCH CONNECTION - 1971

    Regarded by many as one of the greatest car chases ever and yet its one of the most dangerous and, in my opinion, ill advised additions to any motion picture.
    Yes its magnificent on screen, but the chase had moments where the the car being driven by actor Gene Hackman was travelling at high speeds in actual traffic and not stunt drivers as you would expect.

    BILL HICKMAN was the coordinator and did a great deal of the driving too.

    Lets explore the chase and find out a bit more shall we?

    PATRIOT GAMES - 1992

    PATRIOT GAMES - 1992

    An action adventure which was said to need a Harrison Ford type lead to really make it work....so they got him and got rid of Alec Baldwin.
    STEVE BOYUM, DAVID ELLIS and MARTIN GRACE are the stunt coordinators here with plenty to do.

    Greg Barnett or 'Chiefy' as he's known in the business doubles Harrison Ford and we hear from him about his experience on the movie.
