The famous rowing scene story from Heaven Knows Mr. Allison, told by Robert Mitchum:

   “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. Deborah was wearing her heavy nun’s outfit, and she was paddling the life raft, while I was trying to spear the turtle.
   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 broken paddle and flung it straight at, John’s head. ‘There,’ she said, ‘that will show you how blankety hard I’m working, Mr. Huston!’ 
   But she wasn’t mad. Just edgy.”
