He was a mainstay on six James Bond movies and created the famous car chases in the 1969 Michael Caine film “The Italian Job.”

French stunt driver Remy Julienne orchestrated and drove in the movie’s chase scenes, including the one where three British Mini Coopers, painted in the colours of the UK flag, race around a sloping car factory roof before driving 120 kilometres an hour up ramps onto a getaway truck traveling at 80 kilomatres an hour.

Remy Julienne, stunt driver and creator in a career that spanned some 14 hundred movies, has died in France at the age of 90.  He succumbed to COVID-19.
