"Well, I'm getting a gentle glow, anyhow. Wha'd you think of the scene?"
"It was good--very well done, indeed." He hoped it didn't sound patronizing, though that was how he felt. He believed now that Miss Baxter would have done it much better. He ventured a question. "But how about Miss Baxter--when does she do something? Is she going to be swept off the boat, too?"
"Baxter? Into that water? Quit your kidding!"
"But isn't she here at all--won't she do anything here?"
"Listen here, Kid; why should she loaf around on the set when she's paying me good money to double for her?"
"You--double for Beulah Baxter?" It was some more of the girl's nonsense, and a blasphemy for which he could not easily forgive her.
"Why not? Ain't I a good stunt actress? I'll tell the lot she hasn't found any one yet that can get away with her stuff better than what I do."
"But she--I heard her say herself she never allowed any one to double for her--she wouldn't do such a thing."
