Clive, Young, Yikes: The History of Movie Stunts History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
Yikes: The History of Movie Stunts is a fast-paced sequel to my popular Kaboom: The History of Special Effects program, tracing the action-packed evolution of stunt work in movies.

From car chases, explosions and leaping off bridges, to sword fights, motorboat jumps and hanging from helicopters, Hollywood stuntmen and women risk their lives daily to bring excitement to the silver screen.

Starting in the early 1900s, the program follows a timeline of movie stunts throughout the ages, presenting some of the most spectacular acts ever put to celluloid while explaining the advancements in technology, training and safety that made them possible.

Amazing stories and profiles reveal how and why stuntmen do what they do. What feats are they most afraid of? How do they focus when they know their next move could be their last?

Illustrating the program are legendary stunts throughout film history, from the work of pioneers like Harold Lloyd, to clips from The French Connection, The Bourne Identity, The Road Warrior, Smokey and the Bandit, the James Bond series and more. Presented with plenty of “don’t try this at home” reminders, Yikes is an exciting program for all ages.
