Mimic, 1982

"The actors and the pho­tog­ra­pher spent some time rehears­ing the shot: first Jeff put a piece of tape on the sidewalk to indi­cate the place at which Tom was sup­posed to make the racist ges­ture, but it was impos­si­ble to coor­di­nate the walk so that all three peo­ple ended up in the right place at the right time, so after many rehearsals, dur­ing which Tom and Rod mut­tered curses and racial slurs at each other to get in the mood, they set­tled on a start­ing point and then three steps and then the ges­ture and then the shot, and please, every­one, no more laugh­ing."
