Charles Manson isn’t the only character in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood whose exploits are based on actual events. Brad Pitt plays stuntman Cliff Booth, based on real-life stuntman Gary Kent. Now, the documentary Danger God is offering a deep-dive into Kent’s extraordinary career. Give the trailer a spin embedded at the top of the article!
Professional stuntman Gary Kent has made a hard-earned name for himself in over 50 years of falling, burning, jumping, fighting and breaking himself for some of the most cherished independent and B-movies of the 20th Century. This is his story, from the anything goes days of the drive-in era, including his run in with Charles Manson and his infamous family, to his personal battles and triumphs with health, alcoholism and love. Features interviews with Monte Hellman, Duane Eddy, Richard Rush, Marc Singer and more.
Look for Danger God on digital August 6th and on DVD September 17th via Wild Eye Releasing.
