You dont know who Bill Hickman is!!! well im gonna haveto tell you he drove the black charger in 1968,s bullitt and also drove the 73 grandville in 1973,s 7ups (my avatar) he also was the first on scene tow truck driver at James Deans fatal car wreck back in the 50,s Great stunt driver/actor died of cancer in 1986
I knew that you'd get the reference !
Hickman's probably my all-time favourite Stuntman from "the golden era" ; just an absolute genius ! He not only corrographed the stunts in Herbie the Love Bug , Bullitt , French Connection , etc. , etc. , but he also piloted the cars ! Just an amazing dude .
My favourite scene from The Seven-Ups is when the Ventura crashes hard into that tractor-trailler . Y'know why ? Because some nutjob actually drove that Ventura into that trailler's bumper ! A one-shot deal ; get it right-on or blow it completely .
Youtube *used to* have "Anatomy of a Car Chase" available ; the behind the scenes of the car chase from the Seven-Ups . Brilliant !
