History: David Sharpe started out as a young actor and became one of Hollywood's all time greatest stuntmen, appearing in over 5,000 films spanning six decades. An A.A.U. Tumbling Champion, he starred in five Our Gang shorts, two in his role as a young actor and three doing stuntwork as various characters as well as a featured role in The Boy Friends alongside Mary Kornman and Mickey Daniels. He also did work as a second-unit director, but much of his life was spent doing stunt work and doubling for the likes of actors such as Harold Lloyd, Clayton Moore, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Marlon Brando and Tony Curtis to movies as recent as "The Poseidon Adventure" and "Blazing Saddles." Sadly, he passed away on March 30, 1980 of Lou Gehrig's Disease as one of the few men to span a career that lasted several generations.
