Bibliography Includes filmography.
Summary In a 50-year career of high falls and fistfights, Gene LeBell has crashed cars, jumped motorcycles, wrestled bears, incited riots and fought some of the deadliest men in the world. He is an AAU National Judo Champion and was a professional wrestling world heavyweight champion when wrestling was more about survival than show business. He parlayed his success into a career as a Hollywood stuntman in such films as Raging Bull, Rush Hour, Batman, and The Dukes of Hazzard. Now he gives us an insider's view of the back rooms, back lots, wrestling rings and dojos where he made his living and built his reputation by dishing out pain and punishment and taking it in return, including behind-the-scenes accounts of such figures as Bruce Lee, Muhammad Ali, Elvis Presley, Andre the Giant, Lou Thesz, Freddie Blassie, Chuck Norris, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, "Sugar" Ray Robinson, "Superman" George Reeves, and Burt Reynolds.--From publisher description.
