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. 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. Canutt was 91 when he died in 1986. TOM CORRIGAN was the son of actor Ray "Crash" Corrigan. His family owned the Ray Corrigan Movie Ranch in Simi Valley, California, eventually called "Corriganville Movie Ranch." The ranch eventually opened with a variety of realistic sets, perfect backdrops for such western classics as Fort Apache, and The Durango Kid. In 1941 Jungle Girl was filmed there and later the Fort Apache set also was used for the popular television series The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin. Today Corriganville Park offers hiking trails and oak trees. Only the foundations of the movie sets remain. Corners gently worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
