Mick Jagger was injured by a backfiring pistol on August 18, 1969, while filming his role in the Australian western film “Ned Kelly.”
The blast injured the hand of the Rolling Stones frontman, who later disowned the film and refused to attend its premiere in London. The production of the movie was also marred by an overdose by Jagger’s then girlfriend, Marianne Faithful, who was originally set to play the female lead. She was sent home following the overdose.
The film itself was a flop and Jagger would never really find a place as an actor. His most famous part was in 1992's "Freejack" - another critical disappointment.
