Stuntman Jesse Wayne who stunted for Mickey Rooney, two of the three stooges and many others – relates his first stunt.
"My first pre-showbiz stunt occurred involuntarily as an altar boy serving a 7 a.m. Catholic Mass when my foot caught the hem of my cassock and propelled me headfirst down the three altar steps. Embarrassed, I immediately looked toward the two pews of nuns from a nearby convent. My first audience hadn’t made a sound, but each nun sported a grin from ear to ear." [Source]
