Woody Strode Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Woody's role in Spartacus (1960) had his character dying and his corpse being hung upside down. To achieve this effect, a life-size replica of Woody was made, but when both Woody and director Stanley Kubrick agreed it wasn't convincing enough, Woody had himself tied around his ankles and hoisted in the air for the shot, and he didn't flinch or move while Kubrick filmed the scene.
      The replica itself was saved and was hung inside the entrance for Universal Studios' prop room for several years until being taken down for storage elsewhere.
