Hotel on Ice

Hotel on Ice

It was January and we were shooting a movie of the week at a beautiful hotel on the Upper East Side. I was the stand-in for the lead, Deborah Raffin. In such small rooms, packed with lights and huge, heat emitting equipment, the windows needed to be kept open and the radiators turned off. It was FREEZING! I wore my down vest in every setup shot. The crew seemed immune to the cold but I and the rest of the stand-ins would jump under the covers whenever we weren't working.
