was Margaret Lindsay and the scene was to show Errol struggling with
her, just before he was killed. It was only a flash, and director didn't
feel it necessary to rehearse. "Hey, you!" the director called
to Errol. It was significant that he didn't use his name. He didn't
use it because he couldn't remember it! "Just give us a good, rousing,
realistic fight, and that's all I'll ask of you."
"Oh, I say, I'm sorry," the tall young man apologized, genuinely repentant. "Let me take a look." Gingerly, the actress placed her tiny hand in his big one. The marks of his fingers were still there on her wrist. "I'm afraid it's sprained," she said softly.
later Margaret was taken to the First Aid station, and a publicity man,
who had happened to be present, was dashing off to his typewriter. "Ye
gods, what a guy!" he was muttering to himself. "Is he the
real thing...a real he-man! I never saw such vitality, such realism
in a fight scene in my life! Of course he's nobody, but I ought to get
a column lead on it, at least."
