Arnold Schwarzenegger's THE TERMINATOR stunt double, FRANK ORSATTI, has died of acute respiratory failure, aged 62.

Orsatti also doubled for Burt Reynolds during the height of his career and co-ordinated stunts for Al Pacino's SERPICO.

The tough guy was the son of baseball star ERNEST ORSATTI, and was prevented from chasing his own baseball dreams by a serious injury.

As well as being one of Hollywood's top stuntmen, Orsatti also tasted real movie fame with parts in ROSEMARY'S BABY, Con Air and THE LONGEST YARD.
