Overview

Crashing cars, roping wild animals in Africa, jumping off cliffs and getting shot off of horses as bombs explode is all in a day's work for a stuntman in Hollywood, and taking the Lord along has made it all possible for Mickey Gilbert. He's been in the movie business since the 1960s, working as a stuntman, stunt coordinator and a second-unit director on some of the most memorable films Hollywood has ever produced. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Wild Bunch, The Last of the Mohicans, The Electric Horseman, City Slickers and The Blues Brothers are just a few of the titles in his impressive filmography. With over a hundred movies under his belt, Gilbert has doubled such iconic actors as Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Gene Wilder and Harrison Ford, and he has designed and coordinated some of the most exciting stunts the silver screen has ever delivered. Filled with humor, warmth, adventure and all the action you can handle, Me and My Saddle-Pal chronicles Gilbert's journey into Hollywood and takes readers along for ride after wild ride as he recollects his part in the making of some of the industry's greatest films.
