William McGann directed. the Because the lighter shades of red, when light is projected through them, will photograph white, most Hollywood cameramen insist upon red globes in all chandeliers, electric wall brackets and floor lamps. White globes, even the frosted sort, photograph with high hilation, or glare. This can be done because the panchromatic film used in practically all motion picture cameras is highly sensitive to the red end of the spectrum, Theatre. For the same reason (the elimination of glare) those neat starched dress shirts and collars worn by the leading man in the picture are more than likely to be light blue, or even yellow. But the camera photographs them as snow white. As for snow itself, it, too, is much too white for the camera’s sensitive eye. Plus the fact that snow in California, except on the mountain tops in winter time, is a costly and impractical luxury. So the motion picture lens is quite satisfied with “¢ 3, °*-the snow scene is to be a passivt* one; ana win corn flakes if the storm is active. In another way the camera takes liberties with nature. Quite likely that ravishing moon-light-on-thewater effect, just as the picture’s fadeout, was photographed either under the brilliant rays of the morning sun or in late afternoon. The light of the moon is too faint, too cold, too yellow, to have any photographic value whatsoever. When the sun doubles for the moon in pictures, the night-time effect is achieved by dye treatment of the negative. Grass eannot be photographed when the sky is heavy with blue light, as it is on misty or hazy days. Under those conditions lawns, shrubbery and pastures will “go black” as Hollywood terminology has it. “T Like Your Nerve” is a gay and romantic story of a mythical Latin country, where young Doug has some exciting adventures in winning the hand of his lady love. The photography in this picture is unusually striking and adds much to the enjoyment of the story.
