Landis has blood on his hands and he never gave one shit (at Vic Morrow's funeral, he actually said "At least he died making a great film." IN A EULOGY)

It's also an interesting and weird glimpse into the Hollywood power structure.
Yeah, Landis was completely careless. I remember reading somewhere that he and most of the crew were coked up at the time as well. So...coke, explosives, helicopter's hovering 20 feet above ground and a psycho director...not a good mix.

There's another book on this incident called Special Effects, and it says that Spielberg was on set immediately after the accident and hauled ass before the authorities arrived...
