When real stuntmen made movies

Peter over at Bayou Renaissance Man has put up a couple of recent clips from the good old days when movie stunts were really done instead of just ginned up on computers. Drjim over at Every Blade of Grass had one too.

In that vein, have to offer up this gem from Hooper (1978).

I miss the days when real men actually made movies, and by "real men", I mean many of the ones who did the stunt work behind the scenes. Those days are pretty much gone now, and they likely won't ever be back.


  1. Yep, not a SINGLE frame of CGI there...

  2. Anonymous8:38 AM

    I think Hooper had or still has the record for most stunts in one movie

  3. Worth watching just to see gas for 57.9 cents.
