Trivia

Fields broke his neck during the production. He was to ride a bicycle up a ramp into the back of a truck (that was slowly moving backwards). He misjudged the approach and went under the truck, banging his head on the undercarriage and breaking his neck. John Sinclair, his stunt double at the time, rushed under the moving vehicle and pulled Fields to safety. See more »
