‘Still waters run deep’ they say.

Richard Farnsworth has proven to be well with no bottom.

Incredibly, though Richard Farnsworth film history was somewhat overwhelming, much/most information about his first 37 years in the film industry as Stuntman/Stunt rider/Extra is almost unknown and “uncredited”.

Another amazing feature of Farnsworth’s work is the number of Film Classics he worked in, including Gone with the Wind, Spartacus, The Ten CommandmentsPapillon … and several Classsic/Popular Westerns: Red River. Arrowhead, The Outlaw Jose WalesMonte Walsh. The Cowboys … others.

When I normally do a Filmography on somebody, it’s usually just cover their Westerns. But Farnsworth appeared in so many other notable movies that I felt compelled to post his other work as well – despite scant information.

Another interesting truth arises: many Support Actors / Extras / Stuntmen often participate or appear in more Films that most Movie Stars themselves. They don’t get the Top Bill – or money – but there they are.

Note: these images below are only PART of Farnsworth Film and TV history. I was unable to find several images or posters.

    He’s a GREAT character actor. I remember when he was nominated for his Academy Award. What a quiet, soft, great presence on the screen. Nice post !

      Yep – there’s a lot more to Farnsworth than meets the eye. He won a number of Awards – among other things – as you’ll see coming up.

    Wow, thats quite a career Farnsworth had, never knew he was a stuntman before getting closer to the camera. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Tim,

      He has a couple more puffs in his pipe before I’m finished with him.
