David Wayne saves Stephen Boyd’s life- on Stephen’s Birthday! “The Big Gamble”, July 1961

Stephen Boyd was forever grateful to co-star David Wayne in the summer of 1961 while filming “The Big Gamble” on the Ardeche River in southern France.  This 1961 “Motion Picture” magazine article below tells the dramatic story of Stephen’s very close brush with death. Thank goodness David Wayne was a good swimmer! Stephen also told the story himself in late 1961 while guest starring on the “What’s My Line?” TV show.
