Description

Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Steve Chain, Author of , “Fly By Night: The Secret Story of Steven Spielberg, Warner Brothers and the Twilight Zone Deaths” 

About Harvey's guest: 

Today’s guest, Steve Chain, has written a fascinating and compelling book about an event that is widely considered to be the greatest tragedy to have ever occurred on the set of a Hollywood movie.   

On July 23, 1982, during the filming of a key final scene in “Twilight Zone: The Movie”, veteran actor Vic Morrow and 2 young children were instantly killed, when a helicopter hovering above them crashed as a result of pyrotechnic special effect explosions.  It was the first time in Hollywood history that actors were killed on a movie set.   

Our guest’s book is entitled, “Fly By Night: The Secret Story of Steven Spielberg, Warner Brothers and the Twilight Zone Deaths”, and it reads like a mystery detective novel, where, piece by piece, the puzzle of what actually happened is put together, revealing a poorly planned, highly negligent and dangerous act, followed by a severely flawed investigation, leading to a well-organized cover-up by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood and their lawyers – and culminating in a highly publicized and dramatic 10 month trial, in which director John Landis and 4 other crucial players were ultimately acquitted of involuntary manslaughter charges.    

Given the recent tragedy involving Alec Baldwin that occurred on the set of “Rust”, the events that took place during the making of “The Twilight Zone Movie” have taken on new relevance on the issue of safety on a movie set.
