The Daredevils of Hollywood was all about those early Hollywood stunt men and stunt women. The show described the true to life excitement and danger of a different person each week.
When films first started, no one thought about hiring people to do stunts. If a stunt was required, either the actor did it or the film people hired someone from anywhere to do it. Eventually, because of the public's desire for action movies and the need to protect the talent, the job of stunt man came about…mostly through trial and error.
Some of the legends in the business who appeared on the show include Cliff Lyons, Lone Reed, Slim Talbot and Aileen Goodwin.
