For years Marcel Fournier led a family of stunt performers. Their fame was such that Ottawa filmmaker and photographer Lois Siegel made a documentary about them. Titled Stunt People, the film covered four generations of the Fournier family doing what they liked doing best: smashing cars, catching fire and falling off buildings for the fun of it. Their passion is action and adventure. The film was based on a short produced for the National Film Board and titled Stunt Family. Marcel Fournier was 83 when he died. Thought to have been in as many as 100 films, we have posted the few titles we’ve been able to find.
