You may not be familiar with all the 60s movie figures satirized in Tarantino’s new Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, but you can change that. Cliff Booth, Brad Pitt’s stuntman character in the film, was loosely based on a real stuntman named Gary Kent. Now you can learn all about Kent in a new documentary from Wild Eye Releasing, Danger God.
Kent was featured in a lot of B movies during the Sixties and Seventies, and you can see him pull his stunts in movies directed by Richard Rush, Ray Dennis Steckler and Al Adamson. But perhaps his biggest stunt was running into THE Charles Manson and living to tell the tale.
Professional stuntman Gary Kent has made a hard-earned name for himself in over 50 years of falling, burning, jumping, fighting and breaking himself for some of the most cherished independent and B-movies of the 20th Century. This is his story, from the anything goes days of the drive-in era, including his run in with Charles Manson and his infamous family, to his personal battles and triumphs with health, alcoholism and love. Features interviews with Monte Hellman, Duane Eddy, Richard Rush, Marc Singer and more.
Danger God is available now on digital, and will be flying onto DVD shelves September 17, courtesy of Wild Eye.
