Tom Steele Facts
Stuntmen are often selected because of their resemblance to the star they are doubling for. In contrast to this, many of Republic Pictures' western stars in the 1940s and early 1950s, such as Allan Lane, Bill Elliot, Rex Allen and Monte Hale, were selected in part due to their resemblance to Steele, who would do their stunts.

His trick for keeping his hat on in fight scenes (so the audience couldn't tell it wasn't the star) was to put rubber surgical tubing in the sweatband to make it fit tight.
