A good movie

To be honest, for some reasons, I have never been really attracted by this movie. It probably had to do with its title. Indeed, on one hand, it was annoyingly patriotic and, on the other hand, it is simply plain lame. Still, this movie seemed to have such a decent reputation as it had been nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award, it was on the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' and acc... read more

I also appreciated the effort put into exploring what the wives of these men had to endure (though in some cases it might've dug dee"

List of (real) film accidents/deaths (53 movies items)

"Stuntman Joseph Leonard Svec died while performing a parachute jump which recreated Chuck Yeager's escape from a stalling NF-104. In real life, Yeager's flight helmet had caught fire on colliding with the ejection seat's heated exhaust in mid-air. Svec carried a smoke canister during his freefall to simulate such fire. However, this may have intoxicated the stuntman, causing him to lose consciousness. He failed to open his parachute and fell to his death."
