DID JOHN THOMAS REALLY WALK ON WATER?

A couple of people have asked about the photo in my last Blog . . . . "Was that some kind of special effects trick, or could John Thomas really walk on water?" In the photo, which was given to us by Charlton Heston in appreciation for our work on his film "Motherlode", John Thomas is standing on the BOTTOM of a float plane in which wife Betty had just crashed, nearly losing her life.

Betty Thomas, a stuntwoman on the film, was flying with a pilot who was inexperienced at landing on northern mountain lakes. When the pilot tried to land, one of his pontoons dropped low and tipped the plane into the lake. The plane came to rest upside down in an ice cold glacial lake with Betty and the pilot still strapped inside. BOTH people nearly lost their lives in that crash. However, as the plane crashed Betty had the presence of mind to brace herself, release her seat belt, and crack her door open so the water would not trap them inside the sinking plane. In the process of escaping from the plane she also rescued the dazed pilot, pulling him from the submerged plane to the surface and safety.

Since John Thomas died in 1994 she has kept our company alive and thriving in her role as President & Board Chair. Betty was the first female stunt performer, first female Stunt Coordinator, and first female Second Unit Director, in Canada. She has won numerous Canadian and International Awards, including Canadian Female Entrepreneur Of The year. After winning the coveted award, she was invited to judge the prestigious Awards competition, and has continued in that role for almost a decade.

Customers who call into our company seldom realize the accomplishments of the person who is on the other end of the phone. For Betty it is all about helping other people to succeed and she is very good in that role, even though she rarely gets any recognition . . . . even a thank you would be nice from time to time, but she soldiers on regardless, making a difference in the world every single day.
