MORNING REPORT

Tv & Video

October 27, 1987| Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

An unabated thirst for thrilling stunts still may be fueling danger and death on the set. The Daily News reports that 10 people have been killed making movies and TV shows in California and nearly 5,000 injured since the 1982 "Twilight Zone" helicopter crash that killed actor Vic Morrow and two child performers. Even so, the industry has opposed new film safety legislation while enacting few risk-reducing measures itself, according to the report. The paper also said the federal agency that recently replaced the state's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the agency that formerly monitored film and TV production accidents, has failed to probe a single movie-related incident.
