Atomic Bomb Taking Out Movie Stars

An atomic bomb was tested in the desert of Nevada in 1953. Nearby, (downwind) in St. George, Utah, a Howard Hughes film was being made with a cast that included Pedro Armendariz, Dick Powell, Agnes Moorhead, Ted de Corsia, John Wayne, and Susan Hayword. These members of the cast all died of cancer. There were 220 other people involved in the film, and 91 of them contracted cancer.
