Mollie Gregory

University Press of Kentucky

It took thirty years to get the wigs off men, and then the business took a step backward when a stuntman replaced a stuntwoman doubling an actress in Planet of the Apes (2001). But the Screen Actors Guild took action. Today, stuntwomen continue to make strides. The book ends with stuntwomen describing the joy of the work, including the importance of being recognized and acknowledged, how their work has made a difference in their lives and made them stronger, and how it has provided moments of bliss.

Keywords:   Planet of the Apes (2001), Screen Actors Guild (SAG) policy, Taurus World Stunt Lifetime Achievement Award
