At nine o’clock that night (after having wrapped at Barbara’s at five that morning)—the start of our second “day” of shooting—two things were becoming “perfectly clear” to use the words of The Great Man from Whittier. The first is that TD&H [Tall, Dark & Handsome] was not a car guy. This I concluded from the fact that he set off the windshield wipers and spray every time he got into the BMW that was being used as his car in the movie. Each time this happened, one of the crew had to rush over and explain to the actor how to turn the wipers off again. Then, we would wait as the spray was wiped from the windshield after which, TD&H would do it again. From that night forward, I tried to avoid scenes where we actually had to see him get into the car preferring to catch him once he was already behind the wheel.
