babybacalling:

“We shot again and again and again. I even stepped in and took Bacall in my arms to show him what I wanted ‘I know exactly what you want,’ he said, and then he did it perfectly. He loved this girl and he was enjoying this. When I knew I had what I wanted I told them ‘Thank you very much’. And he said ‘No no no no, I think you need another shot - how about this?’ And then, ‘How about this?’ Then, ‘You gotta have a kiss shot’. And so he kissed her. Half the shots were of the back of his head and I knew I’d never use them, but they were enjoying themselves. So- what does it cost? It’s just more film
