"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, ‘Thanks very much.’ And he said, ‘No no no no, I think you need another shot- how about this?’ Then, ‘You gotta have a kiss shot.’ And so he kissed her. Half of the shots were of the back of his head and I knew I’d never use them, but they were enjoying themselves.
