Love that acid toss!
I would have loved to have been on the set of this movie while Nick Ray was explaining to Lee J. Cobb the aspects of his death scene. During the final act, Lee's character throws acid from a bottle at Cyd. Unfortunately, his arm can't clear a floor-to-ceiling column in the room and he ends up spritzing HIMSELF INSTEAD. Whereupon he blindly falls out of the window scrieking like a little girl! One of the funniest death scenes in movie history.
Off the record, on the QT, and very hush hush
