PostSubject: JOHN CLAY SCOTT AND BEN SCOTT   Sun Jul 13, 2014 11:42 am

The brothers John Clay Scott and Ben Scott are both stuntmen and actors. Both were born in Blythe, California; John in July of 1957 and Ben in June of 1959.


Their resumes are extensive and both are still very much active today. Both have appeared in major motion pictures as well as television.

Ben Scott to date has over 161 credits for stunts and 15 credits as an actor, while John Clay has 122 credits in stunts and 26 credits as an actor.


In their early twenties, one of their first acting roles was on Little House. Ben was cast as “Punk #3” and John Clay was cast as “R.J.” The episode was “A New Beginning”. They were part of the gang that terrorized the town and beat up Andy as Jonathon was opening a new freight business.

It was obviously a New Beginning for them both. They haven’t stopped working ever since.

PostSubject: ARNOLD ROBERTS   Sun Jul 13, 2014 12:21 pm

Arnold Roberts was born in October of 1922 in California.

Cowboy actor, stuntman and quick-draw artist are all things that could be used to describe him. His career started in the late 1950s and he appeared in such TV shows as "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp" (1958) and "The Untouchables" (1962).

In the early 1960s Lew Wasserman, president of Universal Studios, wanted to develop a studio tour which would take people to see production of films and TV shows in action. Roberts was called up to coordinate the western stunt show portion. When Roberts wasn't doing the stunt show he appeared in many of Universal's western shows, doing stunts and playing a variety of barflies, henchmen and ranch hands as needed. Even with the downturn of westerns in the late 1960s, he still was able to obtain work in such shows as Gunsmoke (1955), Bonanza (1959) and Alias Smith and Jones (1971).


Like most of the cowboys before him, he worked up until the very end, with his last part being that of an auctioneer appropriately dressed as a cowboy in Timestalkers released in 1987.


He died in September of 1986 in California, just seven days before his 74th birthday.

Ever Wondered How They Make People Sweat In The Movies?

We all remember "Stone Soup" when Walnut Grove was in the throws of a heat wave.

Here's how they produced the sweat that Willie was suffering from...............

The sweat and tears our bodies naturally produce have a slightly different viscosity than ordinary water. Plain H20 doesn't bead on the skin the same way real sweat and tears do. You could use plain water to create stage sweat, but you'll find that it doesn't look as realistic as natural sweat. An old theater makeup trick is to mix glycerin and water together to produce a thicker fluid that looks more like real sweat. You can also use this mixture to make fake tears and even blood if you add a little red food coloring.

That's great about the rain machine. You will also notice in "A Christmas They Never Forgot" that it's very sunny out the morning Hester Sue arrives with the wagon holding Mary and Adam, but it's supposed to be cold and stormy because it's snowing.

Good catches!

I seem to remember reading - or maybe we talked about it here - that the budget for the early shows was limited, so during winter scenes, they only showed the snowy scenes through windows and doorways, so that they wouldn't have to use acres of fake snow.

Much has been said about the destruction of Walnut Grove at the end of the series. There were MANY reasons for it as Kent McCray pointed out. Melissa Gilbert stated several times that Michael didn't want the sets used by anyone else.

Below, is a good example of what she was talking about. This is the Walton's home. It was used for many shows after The Walton's ended. They merely alter it a little and probably no one noticed. It was used several times on Mayberry RFD after The Waltons was no longer in production....

PostSubject: DICK DUROCK   Mon Jul 28, 2014 10:15 am

Long before The Monster of Walnut Grove, The Swamp Thing and The Evil Hulk Visited The Prairie!

Comments on being a stuntman……..
“I was very fortunate, being 6' 5". There was a time I throw a standing backflip off the ground. I was blessed with some modicum of agility. It's an art. The idea is to do it and not get hurt, but to make it look like you've been wiped out. Anybody can hit the ground. The idea is that if you have to get up and do it again, you do it the same way. It's acting with your body.”


Big, brawny, and imposing actor and stuntman Dick Durock was born on January 18, 1937 in South Bend, Indiana. The fourth of five children; he grew up in South Bend, Indiana and New Jersey. After serving a stint in the Marine Corps and briefly working as a computer programmer, Durock went to Hollywood to eke out a career in show business. He eventually amassed hundreds of credits in both movies and TV series alike (Durock sometimes worked on two different shows in the same day). Durock began his career in 1967 as the stunt double for Guy Williams on the final season of Lost in Space (1965). He also doubled for both Buddy Ebsen and Max Baer Jr. on The Beverly Hillbillies (1962). With his rough face, large, strong, muscular build and towering 6' 5" height Durock was usually cast as mean thugs who get beat up by the hero. Durock achieved his greatest enduring cult popularity with his excellent portrayal of the titular kind-hearted mutant superhero in Wes Craven's delightful Swamp Thing (1982). He reprised the part in the amusingly campy sequel The Return of Swamp Thing (1989) and the spin-off cable TV series, Swamp Thing (1990). Durock's other memorable roles include one of the terrorists in The Enforcer (1976), the bare knuckle brawler who fights Clint Eastwood at the start of Any Which Way You Can (1980), pie-eating contest champion "Bill Travis" in the charming Stand by Me (1986), and a hostile redneck hunter in the notorious turkey Howard the Duck (1986). Among the films Durock has performed stunts in are Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995), License to Drive (1988), The Monster Squad (1987), Heat (1986), Runaway Train (1985), The Sword and the Sorcerer (1982), Bronco Billy (1980), 1941 (1979), Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze (1975), The Poseidon Adventure (1972), Hammer (1972) and Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972). Durock had guest spots on such TV shows as Star Trek (1966), Baretta (1975), Quincy M.E. (1976), The Rockford Files (1974), Little House on the Prairie (1974), The Incredible Hulk (1978), The A-Team (1983), Magnum, P.I. (1980), Falcon Crest (1981), The Fall Guy (1981), Knight Rider (1982), Married with Children (1987) and Dynasty (1981). He played the "Imperious Leader" on the science fiction series, Battlestar Galactica (1978). He was a proud and active member of the Stuntman's Association of Motion Pictures for over 20 years. Durock lived in Southern California with his wife Jane and made frequent guest appearances at movie conventions held all over the country.

He died after a long battle with Pancreatic Cancer at age 72 on September 17, 2009 in Oak Park, California.

PostSubject: James Shigeta Dies   Fri Aug 01, 2014 2:58 pm

James Shigeta, a top Asian-American actor of the early 1960s who starred in the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Flower Drum Song, died Monday in the Los Angeles area, publicist Jeffrey Leavitt announced. Family members said he was 85.
