Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

fantastic! I'll put my thinking cap on and come up with another question or two. Did you become friends with Gregory Peck on the set of Yellow Sky? or was it later? Can you tell us some more about your mom and dad? Greg lived very close to the Riviera Country Club. As many stars did at that time, t...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Hey, Martha, before I forget to ask: please tell us a bit about your "non-stunt" appearances on film, could you? I think I spotted you in one of crowd scenes in The Unsuspected (1947), directed by Michael Curtiz as a dancing lady in the background around 3:12 in this clip. Do you know whe...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

I think my very favorite thing I did was the fire scene in Interrupted Melody. Although a fake fire, it was hugely real looking and the most expensive indoor scene ever at that time. So, it was a wonderful interaction with the horse I used. We rehearsed it for three weeks. His name was Ski and what...

Re: !

Martha, I have just loved your visit here, you are a champ, a great writer and a very down to earth person. Your stories are priceless! I hope I'm not too late to ask whether you knew Leslie Howard? I imagine you were a child if you ever met him, but I'd be curious if you had any impressions? I am ...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Hi Martha...again. I've noticed in you credits that you stunted in films that starred Elvis Presley, Joseph Cotten and Claudette Colbert. Do you have any recollections of these stars? Thanks again Joe aka Mongo Hi! I worked with Elvis on his first film. He was a sweetheart. He was very shy at that ...

Re: Welcome Martha Crawford Cantarini

Hi Martha! My horse loves learning "tricks" and people are amazed at what she will do for a piece of candy. I had read the classic stuntman's book about his "falling" horse Cocaine, but just can't believe that. Do you know how to convince a horse to fall while in motion with a r...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Hi rerun :P and thanks for your visit to the SSO this weekend. My question is a long shot, but here goes. Did you ever work with or meet Agnes Moorehead, and if so, could you share whatever you remember about her? She did make some westerns, such as The True Story of Jesse James (1957) with Robert ...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Hi, Martha! Did you have a favorite horse for your stunts, aside from Ski? Did you do all the different types of horse stunts? Did you have any favorite stuntmen or women that you worked with? Can you tell me about Jack Holt or any of the Holt family? Were there any supporting players that you got ...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Dear Martha, Thanks for your answer on Ben Johnson. I was really glad you mentioned Ben's wife Carol and his father-in-law Fat Jones as they are not celebrities and it's hard to find information on them. I'd love to hear more from you especially about Fat Jones -- that is, what he was like as a per...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Hey, Martha--thanks for that insight into Gable (and ex-husbands!). Here's a picture of Martha doubling for Eleanor Parker in Interrupted Melody . I saw this movie for the first time recently without knowing that Martha was the stunt woman. This scene was the best part of the movie for me! http://i...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Ms. Cantarini, Thank you so much for visiting the Oasis! It's a delight to have you here! I am so enjoying reading this thread! I am a big "Wild Bill" Wellman fan and laughed at your story about him. As for polo, did you meet Walt Disney (he was an avid polo player when he was younger) an...

Re: Welcome to Martha Crawford Cantarini

Wow. I don't think I would have handled any crowd scenes too well after that experience on The Seventh Sin , Martha. Was that setting in Hong Kong the roughest location you ever worked on during your career? Could you please write a bit about your impressions of Clark Gable ? Did you first meet him...
