When researching a different question, I came across an article on horse stunts, which claimed that a stunt from the John Wayne movie Stagecoach was one of the most difficult and dangerous stunts on film.
Wayne is replaced by stunt rider Yakima Cannute in a dramatic scene where the hero jumps aboard a galloping horse that’s part of a team pulling a stagecoach. He leaps from horse to horse, trying to get control of the reins before getting shot. He then falls in between the horses, slides down the pole between them, under the coach, and is then left in the dust as other riders gallop by. It’s said to be one of the most difficult and dangerous stunts on film. It was filmed once, and in one shot.
Is this in fact the most difficult/dangerous stunt, or is there a general list/consensus of what are considered to be the most dangerous stunts to attempt when filming?
