George Morrison (USA) shot down 1943, evaded capture

Hi,

I'm trying to assist a gentlemen in France in finding any information about an American airmen who was shot down, but evaded capture . assisted by of the French Resistance groups near Touraine .

they know very little beyond they think it was 1943 and that George had a wounded leg, possibly a bullet wound. An interesting snippet is that George had been a silent movie actor. There is a George "Pete" Morrison listed on imdb from the Silent era but he was born in 1890, so would have been far too old I would have thought ?

Can anyone shed any light on this story ?

many thanks


Jonathan

Is that saying he evaded capture in 1944 but was killed in 1945 due to mechanical failure ?
