Dave Kashner was born in Palestine, native language Hebrew, working as an assistant cutter in films.

A former cattleman, he was so skillful in handling whips that also his harmless lashes seemed to be very hard.
An expert with the whip, he was often employed in flogging scenes. He could cut cigarettes out of actors' mouths, fire a gun by lashing the trigger, and snap objects out of their mid-air flight. He made his own leather-braided whips, ranging from 6 to 25 feet, which often took months to complete.

Born March 4, 1896 in Jaffa, Palestine
Died February 4, 1985 in Los Angeles, California
