They are responsible for some of the most thrilling moments we witness in the movies. Yet, a majority of stuntmen (and women) are largely unknown to the general public.

We here at Goliath feel it is time to give some long-overdue recognition to legendary stunt performers.
Here are 10 of Hollywood’s greatest stuntmen and their famous roles. Enjoy!
