LeonLeon & Eric

ABOVE Left: Leon Goodstriker, a Blackfoot Indian from Alberta, was listed in the credits as a stuntman. In the film, perhaps most noticeably, he gets to pull Madeleine Stowe around by the neck! - ABOVE Right: The "men of the regiment" were usually paired with an Indian warrior to fight it out throughout the movie. Leon became Eric's fighting partner, and eventually his good friend. In this way, the partners were able to rehearse all their moves of battle!

Ambush Site

This shot, taken at the site of the Ambush, shows the platform - at bottom - that stunt men would fall on. Closed cardboard boxes acted as cushioning. There was an 18 foot drop from Trail to Platform, another 12 feet from Platform to Stream. On occasion, the boxes would slide off the platform, causing the stunt man to fall into the water. The man in blue here is attempting to climb back up the bank!

Massacre Valley Site

Apparently, there was some ill will between the production "weenies" and the Cadre & other extras. Here, at Massacre Valley, we see the makings of an argument.
