“Here Comes That Guy Again”

June 4th, 2010 · No Comments

We’re off to deal with the federal government, so we’ll outro with one of the greatest stunts in cinematic history: the crocodile jump from Live and Let Die. As amply shown above, no fancy CGI or other tricks were used in the making of this scene—croc farm owner Ross Kananga (nee Heilman) actually jumped from snout to snout to snout a grand total of five times. (That third try looks especially perilous.) Sadly, Kanaga passed away while spearfishing just a few years after the film’s release, thereby joining John Cazale in the pantheon of 1970s film legends who were taken far too young.
