John Weld was a man of many hats. During the peak of Hollywood’s Golden Era, John came to Hollywood at age 18 and became a stuntman after performing a 135 ft. dive from a cliff for the film, “The Folly of Vanity”. He went on to have a prolific stunt career performing high-risk stunts for the likes of Laurel and Hardy, John Barrymore, Charlie Chaplin and Tom Mix. A chance meeting with famed gossip columnist Louella Parsons lead John into a career of journalism, working for the New York Herald in Paris.
