This whole blackface stuntman thing always sounded suspicious to me, given no such action is called for in the script, though I suppose it's possible.
Well, I might not have believed it myself, except for Paul Winfield's reaction when we asked him. He had no need to elaborate on such a rumour. We didn't get the impression he was toying with us.

Certainly, I've seen "making of..." clips from other movies and TV shows over the decades, in which a slightly-built male stunt person has been dressed up in a female character's wig and dress to get a dangerous stunt performed for the cameras.

In these more enlightened times, the same furore would erupt if a female stunt person wasn't requested on callsheets.
