Buck Jones / ‘Red Rider’ / 1934

Some of that ‘Extreme’ stuff you see these days has been going on
for a long time.

Here’s yet another ‘Cliff Hanger’ stunt (literally) from
Buck JonesRed Rider‘ serial / 1934.
You’ll notice that the Steed – with it’s 2 riders (whoever they were?)
barely make it across the chasm.
One has to wonder what happened when such stunts didn’t come off?

      Yeah. Well maybe they had a bunch of pillows down there. Or down pillows. Something like that?

        I bet they had nothing. I admire them and thank you for reminding me.

        I don’t think they had anything. They just did it.
