Personal Quote:

Before Bob Simmons, the stunt-men were just advanced extras.


On the top of the cable-car in the James Bond-picture "Moonraker", he went over the side. He had no safety-hooks, hanging with just one hand. If it wouldn't work, the fall would be a certain death. He said "it is the nastiest moment of my career".
