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. Fine condition.
