Thanks, Cusser Afro

I wish he would had been more specific about what stunts he did. Sadly he's too excited about the movie to be accurate and he mentions, I think, only three scenes where he's in (one of them being the scene where Harmonica shoots two men off their horses, like somebody suggested in the past). Now, this man should have been on the commentary track!

The only scenes with any stunt work that I recall are the well scene (already mentioned) and the ambush of Frank, unless I'm forgetting something. What else might he have done?

Horse riders are usually stuntmen as well.

Fair point. Then I can think of a few more scenes he would have been in.

I doubt Landis was a horseman.

I think Peacemaker informed that Landis was specialized to horse stunts.

Was he one of Frank's henchmen who ride up to Morton's train at the end of the Frank-Morton dialogue?
