Robert S. Baker: <<It was an interesting thing with Christie. When she was playing her first scene she was very hesitant. She kept forgetting her lines and the director ended up breaking them down into small sections. Watching her on the set we weren't terribly impressed but when we saw the rushes the next day the whole thing lit up. Amazing. This was before Darling.>> (Simper, p.20)
