When the effort failed, the director left the set in frustration, three of the crew members said.”

At the time, Kent told the newspaper she recalled Emmett telling her, “Bruce can’t remember any of his lines. He doesn’t know where he is.”

But following that incident, “Emmett made five more movies with Willis,” the outlet reported.

According to the Times, Emmett denied witnessing “any decline in Mr. Willis’ health.”

Burningham said she and Kent left the office.
