dust in the wind / Melanie
Stagecoach Run is Winds of the Wasteland – the same movie restored and colorized by Legend Films. I couldn’t find any new posters or advertising media for it though. Just a few clips.
Yakima Canutt does plenty of stunt work in this movie – plus some acting (as a badguy) – but receives no Credit on the Bill !! Those stunt guys don’t get no respect !
Lew Kelly provides a little Comedy relief inside the coach.
Not sure how many stagecoach stunts Yakima Canutt performed in his career,
but there was plenty. This one is pretty tame by his standards.
Then Yak jumps into the driver’s seat and magically transforms to John Wayne.
Most of Yak’s and John’s stunts were seamlessly done – you honestly
believed it was John performing the action.
But Yak’s not finished yet – he jumps onto the horses !
Below: Not sure how this was done, but it appears
John is doing a bit of stunting himself?
There’s a bit of a wardrobe screw-up here though as John and Yak
appear to have different colored vests on. ??
Those Actors – always wanting to do their own stunts.
