Next time you see your favorite female actor risk life or limb on-screen, think good thoughts for the stunt double.

Mollie Gregory tells the story of these unheralded heroines in her book Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story.  Gregory brings her story to the Ashland Literary Fest Saturday (October 8), and to our studio in advance.
