At one point during the shoot I would answer a ringing phone and say, “God? Is that you?” Except the phone I picked up wasn’t real. It was one of those plastic phones that toothless babies gnaw on and when I picked it up, I could smell baby spit on the mouthpiece and I slammed it down and started hollering as if the phone were on fire or like I was one of the ape-men at the beginning of “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

I must have been standing there for a long time because another of the producers poked his head around the corner and said, “Hello? Whenever you’re ready?”

I walk the line

When I turned the corner I saw the cameras pointing at me from the other end of the hall. They looked about a mile away and for a moment I forgot how to walk. My legs and arms were moving, but I was conscious of them moving instead of letting it happen naturally. I thought of swooning like Fay Wray when she saw King Kong for the first time. With hand to brow, I could stagger my way to Vicki.
