The non-profit organization needs a new home - thousands of exhibits, rare artefacts and memorabilia that has taken its founder more than 50 years to collect, catalogue and restore.

For movie fans, and aficionados of the James Bond film series in particular, it's worth knowing that some of the inductees include legendary stunt people such as:

Andy Armstrong (inducted 2010), Bob Simmons (2011), Donna Garrett (1982), George Leech (2006), Lars Lundgren (1992), Martin Grace (1983), Vic Armstrong (1982) and Wendy Leech (2010).

In our eyes, they have all contributed to the success of the James Bond film series in more ways than the average cinema goers can imagine!

If you are a fan of film or television and would like to be a part of movie history, please donate $25 to the Hollywood Stuntmen's Hall of Fame via their website below.

ABOUT THE HOLLYWOOD STUNTMEN'S HALL OF FAME MUSEUM:

Thousands of Exhibits of Rare Artifacts and Memorabilia of Stars and Stunt Performers of Motion Pictures and Television, featuring personal items donated by John Wayne, James Stewart, Steve McQueen, Gene Kelly as well as Legends of the Stunt World, including Yakima Canutt, Cliff Lyons, Dave Sharpe, Hal Needham, Ronnie Rondell and hundreds of others.

There are over 400 concrete blocks that contain the footprints and handprints as well as signatures of many of the Greats of the Cinema ... a collection that out-ranks those that are located at the Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. This rare collection has taken its founder, John Hagner more than 50 years to gather and catalog for posterity, features costumes, weapons, stunt equipment, photos and paintings, posters, sculptures, hats and caps, boots and shoes, murals and dioramas, plus over 10,000 movies and serials on video, as well as 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm original films and film clips. In addition to those, one of stunt ace Dar Robinson's jump cars and decelarator which he used to make the spectacular leap from the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada as well as other record- breaking stunts.

The Hall of Fame has been in existence since 1973 and is a California Non-Profit organization that is dedicated to preserving the history of the Stunt Profession.

Currently The Hall of Fame is without a home to display all these wonderful items.
