This was Dick Purcell's last screen appearance. On April 10th, 1944, after finishing a round of 18 on the golf course, Purcell went into a locker room to change his clothes but never came out. He was later found slumped over a couch, apparently from a massive heart attack. It has been said that the physically demanding role of Captain America (Purcell did his own stunts) contributed to his untimely death.
