It was an easy case to prove.

Over in Trivia there is this little note: Actress Helen Twelvetrees sued, claiming that the film was based on her life story. She won her case.

It would have taken a really bad lawyer to lose the case. RKO was on record of making the claim. On page six of the pressbook sent to the theatre exhibitors, there was a long publicity story , for use in local newspapers when the film was showing in their towns. It told of the many stunt men who were involved (in actual roles and stunts) on "I'm Still Alive." Mentioned were Allen Pomeroy. George Magrill, Cliff Bergere, Art Dupuis, Cy Slocom and several others. And, about half-way through the long ready-to-be printed (and it was) story was this paragraph from RKO's publicity department: "Strangely enough, every one of them is married, and most of them own their own homes. It is a fetish with these men who lead such hazardous lives to run no bills, to pay cash for everything they buy. They had fun on the picture which, they say, is based on a true story of one of their number, the romance a few years ago between the former star, Helen Twelvetrees, and stuntman Jack Woody."

She might have overlooked it. if they hadn't called her a former star.
