Doc - Le Cinéma dans l'oeil de Magnum

Le cinéma dans l'oeil de Magnum

docu_magnum-cap01-2 

Année: 2017
Réalisation: Sophie Bassaler

Pays: France
Durée: 54 min

À l’occasion des 70 ans de Magnum, retour sur le lien noué entre les photographes de l'agence mythique et le monde du cinéma. Une plongée unique dans le regard des créateurs, parmi lesquels Robert Capa, Cartier-Bresson, ou Josef Koudelka.
L'agence Magnum, créée en 1947 par Robert Capa, est intimement liée au cinéma depuis soixante-dix ans. Ses photographes iconiques, Capa lui-même, Cartier-Bresson, ou plus tard Josef Koudelka ont accompagné des tournages, leurs réalisateurs et leurs vedettes. Ils ont ainsi documenté des scènes de vie quotidienne, de travail, ou choisi de s'écarter du cadre pour immortaliser leur propre vision artistique. Venant du reportage de guerre ou du documentaire, ces photographes du réel ont appliqué leurs méthodes de travail à ce monde d’illusions : appareil léger, lumière naturelle, photo sur le vif et sans retouches. Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Kate Winslet, Michelangelo Antonioni ou Theo Angelopoulos sont passés sous l'œil de l'agence, instaurant un lien unique qui ne s'est pas défait en soixante-dix ans.
Fiction et réel
C’est par amour pour l’actrice Ingrid Bergman que Robert Capa prend la toute première photo de cinéma de Magnum sur le tournage des Enchaînés d’Alfred Hitchcock, inaugurant cette histoire entre l’agence et le cinéma. À partir de nombreux récits inédits, le documentaire retrace toute une vie d’histoires croisées entre deux mondes qu’a priori tout oppose : la fiction et le réel, comme cette rencontre en 1994 entre le réalisateur Theo Angelopoulos et le jeune photographe Josef Koudelka. Ils puiseront dans les Balkans, lieu de tournage du film Le regard d'Ulysse, des clichés et plans extraordinaires, tout en gardant chacun leur signature unique. Un témoignage passionnant sur le regard des créateurs, artistes de l'image, qu'ils soient derrière une caméra ou un appareil photo.

Retranscription du passage lié à Marilyn Monroe:

(à 19min 30sec) - Peter Marlow (photographe): Quand on a ce genre de relations, cela rend les choses très différentes; ça permet d'atteindre ce niveau d'intimité.
David Hurn (photographe): L'exemple parfait, c'est Marilyn Monroe et Eve Arnold. Elles étaient très amies et totalement à l'aise ensemble.
Eve Arnold (photographe): Marilyn avait vu une série de photos que j'avais faite de Marlene Dietrich. C'était au début des années 50; ça devait être en 52. A cette époque, les photos étaient toutes retouchées. Tout était très mis en scène. Moi, je ne savais rien de tout ça, j'étais une photojournaliste. J'ai photographié Marlene comme elle était. Elle ne posait pas. Il n'y avait pas de décor ou d'éclairage, juste moi et elle qui chantait. Quelques temps plus tard, je suis allée à une fête donnée pour John Huston. C'est Sam Shaw, un ami commun, qui m'a présentée à Marilyn. Elle m'a regardée et m'a dit: "Vous avez fait du beau travail avec Marlene. Imaginez ce que vous pourriez faire avec moi." J'ai trouvé ça merveilleux. Il se dégageait d'elle une vraie naïveté, mais en même temps, elle avait le sens de son image et savait se vendre. Je suis sûre qu'elle a tout de suite sentie ce que nous pourrions faire ensemble. Un jour, une nuit plutôt, vers 4 heures du matin, elle m'a appelée pour savoir si j'acceptais de la rejoindre à 10 heures du matin à l'aéroport. J'aurai droit à un reportage exclusif, car elle voyageait seule avec son coiffeur.
Isabella Rossellini (actrice, réalisatrice): Eve avait sa délicatesse qui je pense, lui a permis de gagner la confiance d'autres actrices. Notamment, celle de Joan Crawford.

(... à 21min 50sec) - Eve Arnold: C'était à Chicago durant une escale qui s'éternisait. Marilyn est allée aux toilettes et comme je suis une femme, je l'ai suivie. Je n'avais pas l'intention de la photographier, mais elle était si belle avec sa jupe relevée sur ses petites jambes potelées. J'avais toujours pensé qu'elle était mince. Elle avait cette merveilleuse capacité à se faire plus grande qu'elle n'était.
David Hurn: Cette photo est tellement intime. Et j'aime à pense que Eve était si proche d'elle, que Marilyn lui faisait tellement confiance. Cette photo, pour moi, c'est la quintessence de la photographie.

Eve Arnold: Je l'ai photographiée sur une période de 10 ans. La plus courte de nos séances n'a duré que deux heures et la plus longue, deux mois, sur le tournage du film "The Misfits" de John Huston. Arthur Miller avait écrit une nouvelle dans laquelle il racontait l'histoire de trois hommes qui travaillaient dans le désert et capturaient des mustangs qu'ils vendaient ensuite pour faire de la nourriture pour chiens. C'est dans ce cadre sauvage qu'apparaît Marilyn. Clark Gable et Marilyn étaient le couple vedette. Il y avait aussi Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach. Le film a été conçu dans le but de donner enfin un rôle sérieux à Marilyn.

Alain Bergala (essayiste): Les "Misfits" est totalement exceptionnel sur plein de points. Mais quand le film a commencé à se tourner, personne ne pouvait savoir à quel point, ce serait un film exceptionnel.
Voix Off: Le tournage du film "The Misfits" est un cas unique dans l'histoire des relations entre photographie et cinéma. Neuf grands photographes de Magnum Photos vont suivre ce tournage chaotique durant les trois mois de l'été 1960 à Reno et dans le désert du Nevada. Se succédant deux à deux toutes les deux semaines. Cet accord exceptionnel n'était pas uniquement le fait des liens de John Huston et de l'agence, mais revient à l'initiative de Lee Jones, à l'époque responsable des projets spéciaux du bureau de New York, qui a eu le pressentiment que ce film au casting de rêve mériterait une couverture exceptionnelle.

Alain Bergala: C'était la première fois dans l'histoire du cinéma où une agence obtenait l'exclusivité. Alors que toute la presse du monde aurait voulu être là. Il l'a obtenu pour une raison simple c'était que Marilyn était déjà mal en point au début du tournage et si elle avait vu arriver des photographes du monde entier, elle aurait craqué.

Voix Off: Les deux premiers photographes à arriver à Reno sont Inge Morath et Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Agnès Sire (directrice de la fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson): Cartier-Bresson, ça ne l'intéressait pas du tout. Et puis il a entrepris un voyage aux Etats-Unis l'année du tournage des "Misfits" et je pense que Lee Jones et tous les autres à Magnum lui ont dit: "Ca serait bien, on a l'exclu sur ce tournage. Ca serait bien que tu viennes, il y a Marilyn Monroe, etc..." Donc, il est allé sur le tournage; il n'est pas resté très longtemps. Mais il a fait beaucoup de photos; il a fait un portrait de Marilyn Monroe qui est très, très beau. Sa définition du portrait, qui est l'idée de saisir le silence intérieur d'une victime consentante, on voit vraiment, dans la photo de Marilyn Monroe, son silence intérieur.

docu_magnum-cap06-7 docu_magnum-cap06-8 docu_magnum-cap06-9 

Inge Morath (photographe -en 2001): Tout était exotique. Le caractère si américain du film était aussi exotique pour nous. Nous adoptions un point de vue très européen.
Agnès Sire: Arthur Miller a donc épousé Inge Morath qu'il a connue sur ce tournage des "Misfits". Arthur Miller était encore marié à Marilyn Monroe, mais c'était en train de se déliter totalement.
Alain Bergala: C'est hallucinant ce qu'on voit là dans les photos de ce tournage. Des scènes privées. C'est à dire que tout était destroy et du coup, tout était possible. Le photographe pouvait rentrer et faire la scène du ménage qui avait lieu à côté. Cela a évidemment beaucoup joué. Et ils ont senti ça, que tout allait mal.

Elliott Erwitt (photographe): Le chaos qui régnait sur le tournage était dû aux constants retards de Marilyn, à sa nervosité, et à sa grande détresse de façon générale.
Alain Bergala: Quand les acteurs arrivent, ils sont tous en très mauvais état. Clark Gable n'est pas en mauvais état mais il est très vieux, et Marilyn, ce film se trouve être son dernier film et elle le fait en très très mauvais état.
Bruce Davidson (photographe): Ce n'est pas le sex-appeal de Marilyn qui m'a attiré, mais sa fragilité. C'était une artiste qui luttait contre la dépression. Il y a cette photo que j'ai prise d'elle avec Huston qui m'a mis mal à l'aise. Elle souffrait beaucoup.

Susan Richards (auteure): Monty Clift était un peu comme  elle. Les acteurs que Dennis trouvait les plus humains sortaient souvent de l'Actor's Studio. Ils essayaient de rester eux-mêmes à Hollywood où tout le monde porte un masque. Et Monty Clift ne jouait pas ce jeu là.
Alain Bergala: L'homosexualité qu'il s'interdisait de faire savoir, névrose absolue, drogues, lui, il avait tout à la fois. Et c'est magnifique. Evidemment, la scène dans l'arrière-cour où ils sont tous les deux complètement destroy, parce qu'ils étaient réellement destroy. Et Huston détestant les homosexuels... En plus, c'était pas simple pour eux, le rapport avec Huston.
Marilyn Monroe: Ce travail peut être si... On essaie d'être sincère. Cela nous amène parfois au bord d'une sorte de folie. Ce n'est pas vraiment de la folie. Il s'agit plutôt d'essayer d'extraire de soi une part de vérité. Et c'est très dur. Enfin, disons, que c'est pas facile.
Alain Bergala: Marilyn, comme toutes les stars, contrôlait les images qu'on pouvait montrer d'elle. Sur les photos qu'elle ne voulait pas voir diffuser, on voit tout ce qui la menace. C'est à dire pour elle, la beauté n'était pas donnée, n'était pas acquise, qu'est ce qu'il a fallu de travail et d'efforts pour qu'on ait une autre image que ça. Cette lutte l'a tuée. D'être toujours une image, à un moment, ça ne tient plus. C'est le film où ça ne tient plus.
Eve Arnold: On l'a tous utilisée, cela ne fait aucun doute. Nous, photographes, devons accepter le fait qu'on a besoin de l'image des autres. Bien sûr, sans la photographie, Marilyn n'aurait jamais été Marilyn. On l'aurait jamais vue car c'est ainsi que beaucoup de gens l'ont découverte. C'est un cercle vicieux, tout le monde utilise tout le monde. Elle m'a utilisée pour l'aider à aller là où elle voulait, moi et des centaines d'autres. Je n'étais pas unique. J'était unique que dans le sens où elle faisait totalement confiance.

Elliott Erwitt: Les photographes qui ont travaillé sur ce tournage n'étaient pas des paparazzis. Nous étions des photographes Magnum. Personne ne cherchait à nuire ou à créer de scandales. Je ne pense pas qu'il y ait eu des gens comme ça parmi nous.
Voix Off: Le tournage des "Misfits" s'achève le 4 novembre 1960. Le lendemain, Clark Gable est victime d'une crise cardiaque dont il décèdera quelques jours plus tard. Rarement la frontière entre la fiction et la réalité fut aussi mince; et la proximité entre les photographes et les stars aussi grandes.
Alain Bergala: C'est un film 'bascule'. Le cinéma hollywoodien ne sera jamais plus la même chose qu'avant. C'est terminé, donc Il a filmé, en même temps, la décomposition d'un système.
Voix Off: Concurrencé par la télévision, le système des studios s'est essouflé. Et bientôt, les grands magazines suivront. Pour Magnum et le cinéma, une page se tourne.

Lot 488 MARILYN MONROE ARCHIVE OF PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOSEPH JASGUR
 An archive of photographs of Marilyn Monroe taken by Joseph Jasgur in 1946. The photographs were taken of a 19-year-old Norma Jeane Dougherty, before she was Marilyn Monroe. Taken in Los Angeles for Blue Book Modeling Agency, these photographs comprise one of Monroe’s first modeling portfolios. It was this portfolio she presented to Ben Lyon, the casting director at 20th Century Fox who signed her to the studio and shortly after changed her name. Jasgur’s images of Norma Jeane Dougherty mark the beginning of her career and offer us a unique glimpse of Marilyn Monroe, before she was Marilyn.
All prints in this lot are from these early photoshoots and are directly from the estate of Joseph Jasgur. Included in the archive are approximately 400 color and black and white later prints, size 11 by 14 inches; approximately 120 black and white gelatin silver prints, size 8 by 10 inches; approximately 10 black and white gelatin silver prints, size 11 by 14 inches; some oversize prints, contact prints, and a wooden camera tripod used by Jasgur. Some prints are signed or stamped by the photographer, others are not. Print dates vary. Condition varies.

Marilyn a acheté les droits du film 125 000 Dollars et paie Rattigan pour qu'il en écrive le scénario. C'est le premier projet concret de sa société Marilyn Monroe Productions: Greene en est le producteur exécutif, Olivier le réalisateur et producteur, et la Warner Bros en est le distributeur.
Environ 150 journalistes sont présents: photographes et reporters de la presse écrite et de la télévision. Comme à son habitude, Marilyn est en retard et tout le monde l'attend.

Un événement, sans doute orchestrée par Marilyn, va se produire: la bretelle de sa robe noire John Moore va craquer. Olivier restera d'ailleurs convaincue qu'elle le fit exprès pour monopoliser l'attention. Lorsque la bretelle a cédé, la journaliste Judith Crist du 'New York Herald Tribune' est aux premières loges: "J'étais juste derrière elle, poussée contre elle par la cohue largement masculine de journalistes. Il y a les toilettes des dames à droite, j'ai une épingle de secours". La bretelle va être raccomodée rapidement, mais elle cédera à nouveau lors du shooting photos de Marilyn en haut des escaliers. L'incident va s'étaler dans tous les journaux et constituera une excellente publicité.
Olivier, qui, en public, ne tarit pas d'éloges sur Marilyn, est inquiet dans l'intimité. Après la conférence, il dit au producteur Saul Colin dans la limousine qui les ramène: "Saul, je me demande si je n'ai pas fait une erreur."

An event, probably prepared by Marilyn, will happen: the strap of her black John Moore dress will break. Olivier remains convinced that the purpose of Marilyn was to monopolize attention. When the dress strap has broken, the journalist Judith Crist of the 'New York Herald Tribune' is next to Marilyn: "I was directly behind her, pushed against her by the largely male crush of reporters. There’s a ladies’ room to the right. I have a safety pin." The strap is repaired quickly, but it will break again during the photo shoot of Marilyn upstairs. The incident will be spread in all the newspapers and provide an excellent advertising.
Olivier, who, in public, not raves about Marilyn, is worried in private. After the conference, he saiys to the producer Saul Colin, in the limo that brings them back: "Saul, I wonder if I have not made a mistake."

Souvenir de la photographe Eve Arnold: "Son attaché de presse de la côte Est, Lois Smith, me téléphona pour m'inviter à assister à une conférence de presse organisée au Waldorf, au cours de laquelle Laurence Olivier -devenu Sir Laurence Olivier- et Miss Monroe allaient parler du nouveau film qu'ils se préparaient à tourner en Angleterre. J'arrivai un peu en avance de manière à rendre visite à Marilyn dans sa loge avant le début de la conférence. Marilyn avait toujours eu du mal à amorcer les choses. (...) Consciente qu'elle aurait à galvaniser les journalistes, à rendre l'instant magique, à frapper leur imagination, elle hésitait à entrer en scène. Les minutes passaient, on l'attendait et on s'impatientait. Le temps jouait en sa défaveur, mais elle semblait paralysée et incapable d'y remédier, alors que son souhait le plus cher était de ne décevoir personne. (...) Il était onze heures du matin et elle portait une robe de velours noir aux bretelles à peine plus large qu'un spaghetti. Elle était éblouissante, le noir de sa robe faisait ressortir sa peau blanche et sa chevelure blonde. Lorsque je le lui dis, elle me fit un clin d'oeil dans le miroir et me répondit simplement: "Regarde bien". Je n'étais restée qu'une minute dans sa loge, le temps de lui dire bonjour. Elle était déjà en retard. A l'extérieur s'impatientaient Laurence Olivier et le scénriste du film Terence Rattigan, qui me fusillèrent du regard. (...) Marilyn apparut à un balcon en compagnie de Laurence Olivier, Terence Rattigan et Milton Greene. Lentement, Marilyn et Olivier descendirent l'escalier et furent engloutis par une foule de professionnels bien intentionnés; il leur fut difficile de se frayer un chemin. Ils atteignirent enfin la table de conférence et les questions commencèrent. Au début, Laurence Olivier répondait avec beaucoup de sérieux. Puis Marilyn se mit à son aise. Elle retira son manteau mais, en se penchant en avant, elle fit craquer une des fines bretelles de sa robe. L'atmosphère changea d'un coup: elle l'avait détendue en faisant rire son public; on lui proposa une épingle de sûreté. (...) Elle avait réussi à transformer cette réunion pesante, monotone et sans surprise en un véritable événement. Les centaines de journalistes étaient sous le charme. Ils appréciaient la classe avec laquelle l'actrice avait réagi lorsque sa bretelle s'était rompue. En temps normal, jamais je ne serais allée photographier une conférence de presse (...) mais depuis notre voyage dans l'Illinois, j'étais accro à Marilyn."

Marilyn Monroe’s Long Island Affair

Marilyn Monroe’s Long Island Affair

By Spencer Rumsey
published on January 1, 2013

marilyn-monroe-long-island-photo-shoot 
Marilyn Monroe was already one of the most famous women in America when she posed for Eve Arnold, herself a pioneering photographer, at a Mt. Sinai playground and in a nearby marsh in 1955.  (Eve Arnold/Magnum Photos)

 When Marilyn Monroe came out to Fire Island in 1955 to spend the weekend with Lee and Paula Strasberg, who were mentoring her at their famed Actors Studio in Manhattan, she famously remarked, “What a lovely place this is—it’s got water all around it.”

But that wasn’t her first time on Long Island. In 1949 Monroe had visited the Town of Oyster Bay’s Tobay Beach with Andre de Dienes, a photographer friend who’d once been her lover in California when she was still using her real name, Norma Jeane, and struggling to get her footing in Hollywood as a model.

Then she was a budding starlet and she’d come east to promote the Marx Brothers’ forgettable last film, Love Happy, in which she tells Groucho that she needs his help because “some men are following me” and he lasciviously replies, “Really. I can’t imagine why.”

In de Dienes’ pin-up photograph, Monroe was 23 and full of promise. Her troubled childhood in orphanages and foster homes were long behind her. A bright future lay still ahead.

marilyn-monroe-pull-quote-new2By the summer of 1955 Monroe had become one of the most famous women in America. Her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, the Yankee Clipper, was over, and she’d left Hollywood in a contract fight with 20th Century Fox. Her studio bosses had wanted her to do The Girl in Pink Tights. She balked and formed Marilyn Monroe Productions in New York.

The image of her skirt billowing in the breeze from the Lexington Avenue subway—a still from the 1954 movie The Seven Year Itch—had become “the shot seen ’round the world.” Adding to the attraction was her 1953 appearance as the nude centerfold in the first issue of Playboy magazine, because the enterprising publisher Hugh Hefner had paid $500 for the rights to Tom Kelley’s nude photos that he’d taken of her in 1949, paying her $50 to pose on a swath of crushed red velvet.

The news that the Hollywood star had been fully exposed broke in 1952 when Kelley’s photos turned up in a calendar illustration. Monroe showed her genius for self-publicity—and earned even more money for 20th Century Fox—by owning up to it. In answer to reporters’ breathless queries about what she’d been wearing during the shoot, she said she only had on “the radio.”

At the Strasberg’s place on Ocean Beach, Monroe was sharing a bedroom with their teenage daughter Susan, who was about to appear on Broadway in The Diary of Anne Frank. There were “a lot of theater people” at that part of the island, Susan Strasberg recalled. “They were sophisticates, which meant they stared at Marilyn Monroe from a distance instead of staring up close.”

marilyn-monroe-long-island-playgroundOver the Labor Day weekend in 1955 Monroe was on the North Shore, staying at Norman and Hedda Rosten’s cottage in Port Jefferson. They were artistic college friends of Arthur Miller’s, who’d Monroe had been seeing since she moved to Manhattan even though they were both still married at the time. Late that September afternoon she left to do a photo shoot with famed photographer Eve Arnold, the second woman to join Magnum Photos, the world-renowned agency founded by Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Arnold, who was then living in Miller Place, took Monroe to a playground in Mt. Sinai. Monroe brought along three bathing suits and a copy of James Joyce’s Ulysses, which she kept in her car.

She said she loved the sound of it and would read it aloud to herself to try to make sense of it,” Arnold recalled, “but she found it hard going.”

Monroe had performed Molly Bloom’s sensual soliloquy to much acclaim at a small workshop at the Actors Studio. While Arnold was changing film, Monroe got the book out to read.

So, of course, I photographed her,” Arnold explained. Soon it was 5 o’ clock, the golden hour, photographers say. “The timing for the marshes was just right,” Arnold wrote, “the light soft and shadowless and ranging from pale yellow through deep saffron.”

Monroe changed into a one-piece bathing suit with a leopard-skin print and waded in.

She was intrepid,” Arnold enthused later. “She stood in [it], sat in it, lay in it until the light started to go and I called a halt. She climbed out, covered in mud, but she was exhilarated—and giggling.” Later, Arnold would insist that Monroe told her “she had loved the day and kept repeating that these were the best circumstances under which she had ever worked.”

Monroe’s career was nearing its apogee. In the summer of 1957 Monroe was married to Miller, who’d won a 1949 Pulitzer for his tragic play Death of a Salesman. They were living in a weather-worn farmhouse in Amagansett near the Rostens, who were renting a cottage in Springs. Also nearby was the abstract expressionist painter Willem de Kooning, who painted Monroe for his series Women. The image, which Monroe biographer Lois Banner likened to “a cross between a grinning child and a screaming fury,” did not appeal to Monroe’s playwright husband but she didn’t mind. The married couple was in a hopeful phase: He was writing in his studio near the main house and she was cooking and tending her garden. And she was pregnant.

But on Aug. 1, 1957 she cried out in pain. An ambulance rushed her to Manhattan where Monroe hoped that her own doctor could save her baby. He could not. Suffering from a painful uterine condition called endometriosis, she had an ectopic pregnancy, and it had to be terminated. She spent 10 days in the hospital, Miller by her side.

The loss was devastating. When the season was over, they moved back to Manhattan, he ensconced himself in a book-lined study at one end of the apartment struggling over a screenplay that would eventually become The Misfits while she was at the other end, strumming a ukulele and crooning, “I Wanna Be Loved By You.”

The next year they moved to a new house they had built in Connecticut, but they never could recreate the idyllic summer they’d shared on the South Fork. And Monroe’s happy times on Long Island faded into memory.

Eve Arnold Citation 2

*photographe.

evearnoldphoto 

Quel effet cela faisait-il de photographier Marilyn ? C'était comme quand on voit une photographie apparaître dans un bac de révélateur. L'image latente était là, le moment et les conditions de sa révélation dépendaient de Marilyn. L'effet était stroboscopique, et le photographe n'avait qu'à suspendre le temps un instant pour avoir une nouvelle image de Marilyn.

16/10/1960 Dîner et Casino

Le soir ayant précédé le dernier jour de tournage des "Désaxés" sur place (au Nevada), John Huston offre une fête d'anniversaire commune à Montgomery Clift et Arthur Miller (tout deux nés un 17 octobre) dans un restaurant du Fairmont Hotel, à North Beach, à San Francisco le 16 octobre 1960. La soirée est joyeuse car elle marque le soulagement de la fin du tournage.
The evening before to the last day of filming "The Misftis" on location (in Nevada), John Huston organizes a common birthday party for Montgomery Clift and Arthur Miller (both born on October 17) in a restaurant in North Beach, San Francisco, on October 16 1960.

Après le dîner, les invités vont au bar pour jouer au craps. Pendant que John Huston donne les dés à Marilyn Monroe, elle lui demande:
-"Que pourrais-je demander au dés John ?", il répond:
-"Ne pense pas, chérie, lance simplement. C'est ta destinée. Ne pense pas, agis."
Pendant le tournage, John Huston a passé de longues heures, parfois des nuits entières, à jouer dans les casinos de Reno.

After dinner, guests are going to the bar to play craps. While John Huston gives the dice to Marilyn Monroe, she asks him:
-
What shall I ask the dice for John?", his answer was:
-"Don't think honey, just throw. Don't think, do it".

While on location in Nevada, John Huston spent long hours, sometimes nights, at the gambling tables in Reno.
