YOUNG WINSTON

Here is a stunt photograph of me training a falling horse on "YOUNG WINSTON". It was my first big foreign horse movie and was shot in Marrakech, Morocco and directed by Sir Richard Attenborough who I worked with again on "A BRIDGE TOO FAR". I was taught to train falling horses by a great British stuntman called Ken Buckle who was one of the first stuntmen in the UK and he had worked on "GENGHIS KAHN" and "LAWRENCE of ARABIA" etc in the old days and he had in turn been trained by the great Yakima Canutt. Standing in the background is another great British horse stuntman called Tommy Reeves who had worked on all the classic horse pictures as well. The experience I learnt on that shoot has stood me in great stead to this day.
