Peck loved to tell the story about how he surprised her in this scene.  He did not tell her what he was going to do with his hand and that reaction from her is pure Audrey, no acting involved.

    Thanks so much for this!!! She was one of a kind, the picture of elegance,even when she sat holding a sick child in Africa when she was the UNICEF ambassador. Truly an admirable person. ( I even have a pic of my husband with his hand in the ‘Boca di Veritas’ sculpture, but he must be really truthful as he still has both hands!)
