Ted Mapes was a top stunt man who was usually given an acting part in the films he did stunts for. He doubled for many famous actors including James Stewart and Charles Starrett, but was used most frequently, 17 times, as a double for Gary Cooper because of his uncanny resemblance to the actor on camera.

Harley Wood. This was as close to the camera as he got in this film.
