Behind the Scenes: The Wild Bunch (1969) and Django Unchained (2012)

Ever wonder how actors in westerns manage to stay so still atop their horses for close-ups? This still from Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch (1969) provides the answer. Below, a behind the scenes shot from Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained (2012) shows Leonardo DiCaprio atop a ladder to provide a horseback-level eyeline.
