Worth a Watch: The Mad Canadian

Published: Fri Feb 06 2015

The Mad Canadian is a short documentary from 1976 about a Canadian stunt man by the name of Ken Carter. Is this man truly mad, or is he the only one who’s sane in this crazy place we call earth? Watch the film and you might just find out.

As a slightly depressing footnote, seven years after the making of this film, Ken died trying to jump over a pond in a Pontiac Firebird fitted with a homemade rocket.

R.I.P. you madhead.
