About Gary Kent

Gary Kent: The Wild and Dangerous Maverick of Hollywood

Gary Kent was a true Hollywood maverick, known for his fearless approach to filmmaking and his wild and dangerous lifestyle. Born on June 7, 1933, in Los Angeles, California, Kent grew up in a family of movie lovers and developed a passion for cinema at a young age.

After serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, Kent returned to Hollywood and began working as a stuntman and actor. He quickly gained a reputation for his fearlessness and willingness to take on the most dangerous stunts and roles.

Kent's career as an actor and stuntman spanned over four decades, and he worked on some of the most iconic films of the 1960s and 1970s, including "Easy Rider," "The Savage Seven," and "The Hellcats." He also worked as a director, writer, and producer, and his films often featured his trademark blend of action, violence, and sex.

But Kent's wild and dangerous lifestyle often overshadowed his work. He was known for his heavy drinking, drug use, and womanizing, and his personal life was often as chaotic as his films. He survived numerous car crashes, motorcycle accidents, and other near-death experiences, and his exploits became the stuff of Hollywood legend.

Despite his reputation as a wild and dangerous maverick, Kent was also a talented and dedicated filmmaker. He was a true artist who pushed the boundaries of cinema and challenged the status quo. His legacy lives on in the films he made and the countless filmmakers he inspired.
