Gary Kent, one of the inspirations for Brad Pitt’s character in ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, is profiled in director Joe O’Connell’s DANGER GOD. The famed filmmaker ‘loosely’ based Pitt’s stuntman character ‘Cliff Booth’ on Kent, and his own run in with the Manson Family at Spahn Ranch.
Available on DVD September 17, DANGER GOD fixes on one of the legends of the game, Gary Kent. Though the king of B movies in the Sixties and Seventies, working for indie directors from Richard Rush to Ray Dennis Steckler to Al Adamson, Kent tackled even larger real-life challenges.
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.
DANGER GOD is available from Wild Eye Releasing on DVD September 17.
