Of course, all that you see in the image was an real act in front of the camera, no ticks or retouch. No more than three assistants threw the cats, one threw the water from a bucket and Halsman’s wife held the chair.

Ce ciudata imi pare imaginea asta, parca ceva nu se potriveste. Cum de au incaput astia doi intr-o trasura? Cum de nu s-au rupt rotile? Oare este amuzant? Mie imi vine sa rad…
