Ms Cantarini with Frosty at the Thunderbird Casino in Las Vegas
Martha Crawford Cantarini, former MGM stuntwoman and good friend of Robert Taylor, has written a second book. Her first book was Fall Girl, an account of her film work. Ms. Cantarini, now 86, has written the story of Frosty, a true story of a stunted foal’s rise to fame. She adopted the colt Frosty and turned a weak, stunted little horse into a remarkably talented and beautiful animal with his own showbiz career. You can order the book online chapter by chapter for $1 each. The chapters are:
1. A Horse Against Time
2. A New Challenge for a Hollywood Stunt Girl
3. Two Jewels in the Desert
4. Elvis and Love Me Tender
5. Exercise Kinesiology
6. Our Mutual Body Language
7. Las Vegas and Frosty’s Own TV Program
8. Frosty Rolls the Dice at the Thunderbird Hotel in Las Vegas
The illustrations are by Bonnie Shields.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves horses, animals generally, showbiz or just good stories.
