In this clip from Devil Horse, stuntman Yak Canutt can be seen riding a horse. In his autobiography Yak recalled "Devil Horse" in detail, saying "I thought that my time had come, when, in 1926, I was loaned to Hal Roach to play the leading role in "The Devil Horse"... This picture was the biggest and best of the films in which I played the leading role."
