Actor meme » Deborah Kerr [1/2] Behind-the-scenes moments

She was a touch edgy now and then, but no temper - absolutely no temper. Of course, there was that day when Deborah and I were out in a life raft off Tobago, trying to catch the giant turtle we needed to keep us alive. The sun was blazing, the sea was rough, and we had been going through the same piece of action for hours. The director, John Huston, was behind us in the camera skiff, and pretty comfortable, I might say, while all the time he was bawling, “Faster Deborah; paddle faster. You’re not working hard enough.” Suddenly the flimsy paddle in Deborah’s blistered hands broke in half. For a moment she sat there, glaring at Huston. Then she picked up a piece of the paddle and flung it straight at John’s head. “There,” she said, “that will show you how ******* hard I’m working, Mr. Huston!”
