In Licence to Kill, an early scene involved Felix Leiter parachuting to a church. The parachute jump was filmed with a double, but Hedison was filmed landing by being attached to a crane and brought to the ground. Director John Glen asked the crane operator to speed the crane up to allow Hedison to land quicker, but it was done too quickly and as a result of this, Hedison had a limp for the rest of the film.
