Trivia / The Gene Autry Show

  • Fatal Method Acting: Near miss example. While filming the episode The Peacemaker, Pat Buttram was nearly killed when a prop cannon exploded, wounding him in his chest and stomach, severing an artery in his leg and nearly blowing his chin off. Fortunately Gene Autry flew in a doctor to operate on Buttram before the ambulance arrived.
