This film became infamous for a ghastly accident that took the life of Vic Morrow and two child actors. The script for "Time Out" called for a scene in which Morrow's character is supposed to be carrying two Vietnamese children across a river to safety during an American bombing raid in Vietnam. Director John Landis was shooting late at night, violating child labor laws, and ignoring the helicopter pilot's concerns about flying so close to the ground and so close to explosive detonations. The cameras rolled anyway, and the explosive charges meant to simulate bombs caused the helicopter to crash, crushing one child under its landing skid and [[OffWithHisHead decapitating Morrow and the other child]]. Landis was later tried and acquitted on charges of involuntary manslaughter.
