Savannah: Effects worker faces prison for explosives on Travolta movie


A special effects worker is facing a federal prison sentence for illegally possessing explosives while working on a movie starring John Travolta and Morgan Freeman. Court records show 50-year-old Robert Christopher Bailey pleaded guilty before a U.S. District Court judge in Savannah, Georgia.

Prosecutors say Bailey provided pyrotechnic effects for the movie “The Poison Rose” despite a prior felony conviction that kept him from having an explosives license.

Court documents say authorities investigated Bailey after receiving complaints from the Georgia movie set, including one that Travolta was “hit with sparks and treated for a minor injury during a mishap with special effects.” See more at 11 Alive.
