The Bride Wore Red (1937)
During filming, an electrician fell from the catwalk high above the set, narrowly missing the film’s star, Joan Crawford. Shooting was temporarily halted while the man was rushed to hospital. Crawford refused to resume production until she was assured that the man would be fully cared for, that he would remain on salary, and that his family would be provided for. Crawford also called the hospital each day afterwards for reports on his condition.
