Cat. #00080341: YAKIMA CANUTT

Uncommon signature in indigo felt-tip pen on a 3x5-inch off-white card, attained in the early 1980s. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Yakima Canutt, veteran stuntman of the silent era through 1975, racked up nearly 250 credits, mostly in westerns like Sagebrush Trail (1933), The Star Packer (1934) and Blue Steel (1934), and popped up in the horror and sci-fi flicks Lightning Bryce (1919), The Whispering Shadow (1933), The Lost Jungle (1934), One Million B.C. (1940), Mysterious Doctor Satan (1940), Manhunt of Mystery Island (1945), and Captain Mephisto and the Transformation Machine (1964). In 1939, he served as Clark Gable’s stunt double in Gone with the Wind.
