Some days you just have to watch people riding fast. The legendary “cliff ride” in the Man from Snow River (1982) still stands as the most impressive horse chase scene in the movies. While many people assumed the ride was faked, actor Tom Burlinson (Jim) has confirmed that he did the ride himself. Burlinson wasn’t an experienced rider before the film, but he made several trips down the mountain for the scene, along with a stunt rider, and the footage was blended together for the movie.
Someone who has been to the scene reported the mountain was “scary but doable”.
Me? I’d rather watch it on video.
