||Fall Girl, Martha Crawford Cantarini
Martha was among the busiest of Hollywood’s elite corps of female stunt
riders, being the regular stunt double for such actresses as Eleanor
Parker, Anne Baxter and Shirley MacLaine, appearing in films ranging
from Elvis Presley’s debut feature Love Me Tender to the epic
Western The Big Country. Martha also hosted a Las Vegas
television program in the 1960s, while her palomino Frosty gained fame
as "the gambling horse" after rolling a seven at the Thunderbird Casino
As the cover on the photo shows, Martha had to think quick to keep this
horse from breaking its leg when the stunt went wrong. She shares her
stories working and training other horses, especially Frosty, a horse
she got as a foal and transformed into one of the most beautiful and
talented horses in the business. She knew how to train horses to trust
her and do anything she asked. Fascinating read! 225 pages.
