Second, count the balls. Assume recycling. Imagine 3 pics. Before stacking (), after stacking (on), and after removal for recycling (). Imagine say 30 balls visible on the hill and in the gully in . After stacking balls on the road this number falls to say 20. Ten balls will be on the road, or more due to addition of balls from off-frame. After recycling, the ten plus road balls will be gone and possibly some additional balls from the gully, so say 15 to 20 balls visible. Compare off to on pics. If the number of balls off the road in the off pic is greater than the number of balls off the road in the on pic, then off is and it is the first picture. If the opposite if true then off is and it is the second pic. If the number is the same then we can’t say anything for sure, but haphazard recycling seems less likely.
There were dozens of us on the set, bit players, with a gesture to make and a line or two to recite. A few were young and had nice bosoms; but I knew they were different from me. They didn’t have my illusions. My illusions didn’t have anything to do with being a fine actress. I knew how third- rate I was. I could actually feel my lack of talent, as if it were cheap clothes I was wearing inside. But, my God, how I wanted to learn, to change, to improve. I didn’t want anything else. Not men, not money, not love, but the ability to act.
