Lionel Jeffries - Near Death Scene

PostSun Feb 25, 2018 3:03 pm

In the final episode of 'Tom, Dick & Harriet' actor Lionel Jeffries was told to drive a car into a lake which was only a few feet deep. Little did he realize the car would drift into waters that were 45 feet deep! Here is the outtake video. The event left him in shock for a week and the series ended.

Yikes! I guess nowadays there'd be all kinds of safety precautions in place, crew in a boat off camera and so on.

Not familiar with the show, I'm used to seeing Ian Ogilvy play rotters, it would be an interesting change of pace to see him as a likeable character.

safety today is relative, cf. Sarah Jones and this short film on "Handheld Filming in Vehicles (Free Driving)":
