What: After the Saturday Movie.

When: Late 1940's.

Where: Mn farm.

 

Young farm lads make the best stuntmen in the world. Lets say the 4-6 year old's. Nobody can beat them at pretending to fall off a horse or beating each other in a Saloon fight than young farm lads after a Saturday afternoon of watching cowboy movies. Nobody gets hurt. Unless, of course, they actually do fall off a horse or get punched in the nose. Always a possibility. If the film industry hired the young farm lads to do all the stunt work, it would be a lot more realistic.

 

POW! PUNCH! And the other guy falls as if he was knocked into next week. Stumbles back, falls off a bale of hay or shed roof. Looked very real yet the punches never landed! Passing by a nose within inches at real time speed. Amazing exhibit of athletic ability as well as following the imaginary story line.

 

This form of entertainment carried over into the school yard every Monday. It was not unheard of to fool the teacher into thinking there was a real bank robbery. The teacher would holler at the Sheriff and robbers alike while others stood around and cheered. A couple of others were seen riding off on a horse or two. Shooting at each other with their finger guns.

 

I know because I was that age myself once. I must have had a hundred fights without getting punched even once. Not to mention the fast draw gun battles. Nobody ever hinted it was fake.

 

Today they would ask “Is there an app for that?”
