Savini and Buechler Spottings

So, living close to Los Angeles I get to see some of the legendary Friday the 13th filming locations on Topanga Canyon Blvd, Green Valley, Newhall and Saugus. But I also see some people from the films from time to time. Here are a couple interesting sightings I had recently. I saw John Carl Buechler (SFX; Friday the 13th: Part VII) in Starbucks in North Hollywood and Tom Savini (SFX; Friday the 13th: Part IV) at LAX when I was arriving in LA.

Dana Kimmell's Stunt Double Marguerite Happy

from: Teddy O'Toole's Stunt Performers
Marguerite is still an active stunt woman and director of a professional rodeo circuit out of Saugus, California - where Part III was filmed. She did Dana Kimmell's fall from the window in Friday the 13th: Part III when she was being attacked by Jason as well as the stand-in and stunt performer in the (maybe, maybe not filmed) alternate ending to the movie where Chris is beheaded.
