Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This Indian documentary profiles the life of Mary Evans, one of India's most popular stunt women. Evans, the daughter of a soldier, was born in Perth, Australia during 1910. They moved to India after her father was transferred. Before her big break in films, Evans worked as a circus performer and singer. She became a star by playing the adventurous, tough heroine in "Hunterwali," a Hindu action movie that allowed Evans (who was billed as "Fearless" Nadia) to beat up evil characters and wield a whip. Following that, Evans appeared in at least 40 more action films until her career ended in the late '50s.
