Posts from Lt. Brannigan in thread „Ward Bond“

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the incident where he had a serious car accident in Hollywood (might have been in the late 30's, but could have been during They Were Expendable) and was rushed to the ER. They didn't know who he was, and a knife-happy quack wanted to cut his leg off, but a VERY alert orderly spoke up and advised someone to call the studios, whereupon someone came down and stopped the amputation from occurring!

    That occurred during the filming of They Were Expendable.

    Tis a shame I think that Ward Bond died so young, I think it would have been neat if he had appeared in Duke's films all the way to the end of Duke's career.
