1960s / Bing Davdison Tragic Death
One of Hollywood's lesser known tragedies was the death of small-time actor James (Bing) Davidson, a 25-year-old Nebraskan who fell to his doom in 1965. Davidson, whose screen credits show just three small roles, was in the company of actor Paul Lynde in San Francisco on July 17, 1965. Lynde was well known to be a heavy drinker; he and Davidson had both heavily imbibed that night. At some point of drunkenness at the Drake Hotel, Davidson decided to demonstrate a daredevil stunt--hanging from a balcony by his fingertips. In full view of several horrified onlookers (and police officers who had been summoned), Davidson lost his grip and fell to his death from the eighth floor of the hotel. Lynde was absolved of any blame, but the incident was hushed up for years as the circumstances surrounding it may have derailed Lynde's acting career.
