Twilight Zone: The Movie

In the final segment, John Lithgow goes over the edge of madness, takes the cop's gun and shoots at a plane window, trying to kill the creature and it runs away. The window breaks, there are pressure complications, panic ensues and the plane must be landed immediately. When the plane lands, the plane crew takes a look at the plane engines and wings and see that the plane is busted up... so there really was something damaging the plane and John Lithgow wasn't imagining things. He is strapped into a straitjacket and taken away in an ambulance. Dan Aykroyd is driving the ambulance and he asks Lithgow: "You wanna see something really scary??"

Question: I don't understand how they finished filming the first story if Vic Morrow died. It's unlikely that they would've filmed it all, then done the stunt where he died. Could someone please explain it to me?

Answer: They'd already filmed most of the episode. The stunt was one of the final scenes to be filmed. They were able to work the story around any missing scenes.
