Here’s a great behind the scenes shot from the film Mad Max. The photo shows one of the many chase scenes from the film being shot by Director of Photography David Eggby. This sort of thing would probably never be permitted to occur today, what with unions and safety standards and all, but 1970’s Australia was a bit of a wild west when it came to filming. Photo credit goes to Chic Stringer, stills photographer for the film.
I can only imagine what an insurer would say if someone tried this nowadays.
