George alleged that, then, the director taunted him, then started a physical fight, which lasted until one of the actor’s friends pulled him away.
He said, “Finally, he apologized, but I walked away. By then the Warner Bros. guys were freaking out. David sort of pouted through the rest of the shoot, and we finished the movie, but it was truly, without exception, the worst experience of my life.”
This situation allegedly followed several other incidents where George defended crew members, including a camera-car driver he knew from high school and a script supervisor who’d been reduced to tears, from David’s outbursts.
