Somethings that did happened on the site of that Film : First let me introduce myself I was the policeman on that film, my name is Guy Martin and I want to share a few things that did occur on the set.

Some of the scenes was filmed in late September it was a bit cold, and it was supposed to be in mid summer. At one point Maud Adams was appearing in a very light summer dress, as she got out of her camper (dressing room)George (director) notice that Miss Adams could not hides her erected *nipples* (It was so cold outside)so George went to see her immediately to tell her that the scene he was about to shout is in summer so she should not have those nipples like that . They had to go and see the make-up girl and put some surgical tape on her (nipples).

Another funny thing happened the night they had to shout one of the scene I was in. On that old motorcycle (Indian) I was driving, it was suppose to be a clear night of summer but it started to rain a little so it was not in accordance with those scene showing on the drawing board, the street look to wet. George had a great idea, to call for a water truck from the CITY of Montreal to come and water the street just before the filming, We heard George saying CAMERA ROLLING, WATER TRUCK GET READY ...GO, LET YOUR WATER OUT, CAR GO, MOTORCYCLE GO. I did practice before the shouting of that scene but WITHOUT the water truck releasing its water. The shot started good but when I was coming at full speed to arrest that car that David Selby was driving, I had to stop at about 10 feet from the sidewalk, they had put markers on the pavement. The motorcycle was sliding all over and the people behind the camera was getting nervous not knowing if I could stop on time before ramming the camera over, they all ran away except the cameraman who continue filming. I did stop at a few feet from the camera, those markers (sand bags) did help. We heard CUT, and GEORGE came to me and said BRAVO you looked great, my response to this was I am not a stuntman, if you want to do that shot again you ll have to get somebody else .....

I hope you did enjoy reading this..... Guy Martin
