George P. Burdell - Film Star

"Discovered" by little-known cinema director D'Arcy Keats while making training films, Burdell acted in several early movies. Unfortunately, none of the movies were well produced. The rights were later sold to a Mexican investor, and no known copies of any of the movies exist. By all accounts, Burdell was the bright point in each of the films. He was later begged to act in Gone With the Wind, but prefered to continue his work with cedar-based sinotoxins with the USAF, suggesting such parts were better left to "younger, brasher, egotists."

Burdell always acted as his own stunt double.
