The glamorous Burris de Benning was from the States. I was closer to my countryman David Baxter, who was having a mournful summer. At birth he was a blue baby and before multiple blood transfusions, had been given only 20 or so years to live. Then in his 20's, he often mused on life's vagaries. He and I shared our free time up and down the slopes of Gstaad and were equally relieved when the unit photographer gave us the news that the film was to be cancelled.
