Stunt Team For Raiders of the Lost Ark

  I’ll be honest, at first I was going to give the nod for 1981 to Dar Robinson for Sharkey’s Machine as his 220 ft fall from the Hyatt Regency was the world’s record for the highest fall from a building for a commercially released film, but only the start of the fall made it into … Continue reading Stunt Team For Raiders of the Lost Ark
