A rodeo champion Enos Edward CANUTT (1894-1986) was nicknamed "The Man From Yakima".In 1917, he met Hollywood cowboy star Tom Mix, who recruited him as a stuntman. Canutt quickly became one of the leading fall guys in the industry, with a knack for horse spills and wagon wrecks. In the 1939 classic Stagecoach, Canutt was not only the stunt supervisor, but he also appeared onscreen to take falls for a cowboy, an Indian, and even a woman. He also doubled for Clark Gable, driving through the streets of burning Atlanta, in Gone with the Wind. As he grew older, Canutt's injuries took their toll, but he made a successful transition from stuntman, to coordinator, to director. In 1966, Canutt received a special Academy Award for his lifetime of excellence as a stunt performer. His book, Stuntman, was published in 1979. Robert "Bob" LIVINGSTON (born circa 1904-1908; died 1988) began as a journalist before turning to acting, appearing in stage productions and film shorts from the late 1920s. After making his feature film debut in 1931's Dance Fools Dance, Livingston appeared in a long list of feature films, including starring as Stoney Brooke in 29 of the popular "Three Mesquiteers" films. In 1939, he became the screen's second "Lone Ranger" in the Republic serial, The Lone Ranger Rides Again. In the early 1940s, Livingston starred in Republic's "Lone Rider" series (1941-1943) with sidekick Al "Fuzzy" St. John as well as in several non-Westerns. His credits include such films as Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), Hit the Saddle (1937), and Riders in the Sky (1949). The actor/singing cowboy also appeared on several TV series, including The Gene Autry Show (1950), The Cisco Kid (1950, 1953) and The Lone Ranger (1952, 1954). He was married briefly to Margaret Roach, the starlet daughter of producer Hal Roach. Corners creased. Stain on lower margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
