Biography

Director/actor/producer H.B. Halicki made action films that were noted for their incredible stunts and excellent car crashes. The chase in his best-known film Gone in 60 Seconds offers 40 minutes of nail-biting thrills. During that single chase, nearly 100 cars were demolished. It was while filming the picture's sequel in 1989 that one of those stunts, involving a collapsing water tower, cost Halicki his life. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
