RONDO AND BOB
Currently on the film festival circuit, Rondo and Bob tells the story of Robert A. Burns, art director on the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and his obsession with cult actor Rondo Hatton aka the Creeper. Burns was an average looking guy brimming with weird creativity. Hatton was an average guy whose appearance was distorted by acromegaly. Rondo and Bob tells both of their stories.
Gary Kent is the true most interesting man in the world. A B-movie legend, he worked with indie directors Al Adamson, Richard Rush, Monte Hellman, Ray Dennis Steckler. He was partial inspiration for Brad Pitt's stuntman character in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. While his onscreen stunts were dangerous, his personal challenges were even tougher. Danger God tells the story of his drive to succeed and all of the bumps in the road along with way. Availalbe streaming and on DVD/Blu-ray.
Filmmaker Joe O'Connell claims that stuntman Gary Kent is the real “most interesting man in the world.” He should know — he’s made a documentary movie about the guy.

In the late 1960s, a stuntman wanders into Spahn Ranch and thoroughly convinces one of its long-haired residents to fix a vehicle for him. No, dear reader, I’m not describing a scene from Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood. I’m describing a scene from the real life of Gary Kent, the subject of a new and wonderfully titled documentary, Danger God, directed by Joe O’ Connell. Now that’s something you have embroidered on the back of a leather jacket

Gary Kent is a Badass. Yeah, that's with a capital "B," buster.
Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle
Gary Kent has heard sentences no person wants to hear.
Here’s an example: “All your ribs are broken.”
