|Ted White and Judie Aronson|
I found an interesting article from 1966 where White came forward voicing his concerns with the dangers of filming after the actor Eric Fleming was killed in scene in water; a scene White says a stuntman should have been used instead of an actor.
A veteran of 13 years in the business, [Ted] White said, "Eric Fleming's death was completely uncalled for. Eric was working in a boat near rapids. An actor should have never been used in those circumstances.
There are never enough safety precautions taken in movies or television. Stuntmen are available, but movie accidents would decrease by 75 percent if they were given the responsibility for safety.
There's never a need for an actor to endanger his life."
