Tuesday's Overlooked Movies: Yak's Last Ride

This isn't really a movie, more of a tribute to a man who contributed an incredible amount to the art and craft of moviemaking, the greatest stuntman of all time, Yakima Canutt. (Thanks to Dusty Richards for the link.)

One of my favorite early western actors, especially in the serials and B-westerns. Great stuntman. This film is a nice tribute...

A lot of work went into this video; a real labor of love. The many old clips are great to see. I've seen some of those stunts in Wayne's B-westerns and can't believe the nerve it took--and the luck to survive them. Thanks!

Great video tribute!
Nobody needed CGI back when Yakima was around.
