Love and Other Stunts Documentary Premiere
Love and Other Stunts spotlights B-movie star and stunt legend Gary Kent during the independent film/drive-in movie golden age. Kent may be the actual most interesting man in the world. He worked more than 100 films during the independent film/drive-in movie surge of the ’60s and ’70s for directors Monte Hellman, Richard Rush, Al Adamson, Ray Dennis Steckler, and Don Jones. He was in some good movies (Ride in the Whirlwind, The Shooting) and a lot of bad ones with titles like Satan’s Sadists, Schoolgirls in Chains, and The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant.
Love and Other Stunts tells both Kent’s personal story and the story of that era in filmmaking. The “love” of the title is for his troubled relationship with actress wife Tomi Barrett and the love for his stunt buddies Chuck Bail (The Stuntman), John “Bud” Cardos (Kingdom of the Spiders), and Bob Ivy (Bubba Hotep).
