THE STUNTWOMAN: The True Story of a Hollywood Heroine based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is a great book.....I loved it. This one I will definitely read a second time.
From the first moment she entered a movie set Julie Ann Johnson proved her exquisite stunt abilities and was soon ranked among the industry's best. I was a stuntman for forty years and doing a fight was so easy as she flipped me over her head. Unlike other stunt players, male and female when it was like tangling with a moose. Unfortunately, in the early 1980s drug abuse was very prominent in Tinseltown, especially among stunt performers. We all knew the participants and prayed we wouldn't have to work with them. Julie was in the Lion's Den and was soon ostracized when she mentioned the problem. I suspect drug use is still prevalent today. Her book is a compelling story of trying to do the right thing. Anyone who has ever had an interest in Hollywood must read her and Robb's heart-wrenching story. Jesse Wayne
