UNSUNG: THE BALLAD OF BLACKJACK YOUNG, dir. Cody Young
After his service in World War II as a Navy frogman, Jack Young came to Hollywood hoping to become an actor.  Instead, he stumbled into the world of the Hollywood stuntman.  Taking the name “Blackjack,” he specialized in Westerns and worked with the icons of the genre, such as John Wayne, John Ford, and Howard Hawks.  In this short documentary, Jack’s son, Cody Young, explores his father’s career by showcasing some of the more notable stunts Blackjack performed and the untold stories behind them.
