Condorman with Disney Nouns


“Condorman? Really? Yup, we’re starting the loop off with an old live-action superhero romp from 1981.” – Lee

During one take, when Condorman falls into the River Seine, Michael Crawford nearly drowned after the strength of the current was miscalculated. He was dragged five to ten feet under the water before two lifeguards pulled him out just in time. Crawford was willing to do the stunt again but director Charles Jarrott refused to allow it, and put a trained stuntman in his place. (From IMDB)
