Salvador Dali Bloopers

Salvador Dali and photographer Phillipe Halsman teamed up to produce the art photo Dali Atomicus, the picture of airborne water and cats. It wasn’t easy; there were 28 takes before the finished product was shot.
"after each exposure, while the assistants mopped the floor and reclaimed cats, Halsman developed the film to see the progress in the composition. Accidents would happen. The water, intended for the cats, would cover Dali's face instead."

How'd you like to be one of the assitants try to catch the cats after 28 takes. Have you ever tried to catch a cat that doesn't want to be caught? To bad they didn't have video back then. That would have made a funny one.
