distribution of any men's magazine in the UK.

“With children, it is much the same as with grown-ups. To be any good to a
director, an actor or actress must either be wonderful, or know absolutely
nothing about acting. A little knowledge – that’s what is bad! If a woman says
to a child: ‘What have you got in your pocket?’ and the child is not trying to
act, he will show in his face that loveable and awkward look the audience will
appreciate”. So says Carol Reed and, when he came to cast the chief part in ‘The
Lost Illusion’, a boy of eight, he did not go to one of the usual child-actor
academies. He welcomed the idea when Sir Alexander Korda’s casting chief
suggested Bobby Henrey for no other reason than that he liked the little boy’s
picture on a book-jacket. Bobby’s father is English, but his mother is French.
He was born near Caen but escaped to London when Paris fell in 1940 and was
pushed around Shepherd Market in Piccadilly in his French pram during the Battle
of Britain. His first laugh was to see a house demolished by a bomb. He learned
to walk in Mayfair and was so fascinated by a Victorian toy theatre, his mother
said: “You may grow up to be an actor!” She is writing a book about his
experiences. When Korda’s invitation arrived, Bobby was living on his
grandmother’s Normandy farm. He flew to London for a screen test, meeting Carol
Reed at Korda’s Hyde Park H.Q. beneath the bust of Merle Oberon. The director
liked everything about Bobby except a bruised black fingernail. “Don’t let him
lose his accent”, Reed told his mother, “don’t let him play with any more
hammers and, whatever you do, don’t let him grow any bigger”. THE PARENT’S
HESITATION His parents disagreed over whether to accept the Korda contract.
Unlike a shrewd French-woman, his mother murmured that his character might be
spoiled. Perhaps he had better stay and watch the cider being made in Normandy?
His father was more realistic. “I don’t think we can lightly turn down money
which could help start him in a career.” The money was certainly attractive.
Bobby was to get ?1,000 down, free of tax, and after ten weeks, ?100 a week. He
and his mother were to be fed and housed at the studios and provided with
transport. The child was to have a governess all the time he was working.
Bobby’s first job as a film actor was to run across Belgrave Square dodging the
traffic. In the story, he is an ambassador’s son, and so for the Embassy the
film people picked out a building belonging to the British Red Cross and St.
John Organisation, who were glad to lend it in return for having its exterior
painted and its broken windows replaced. During the shooting of these scenes,
Bobby lived in a yellow and green caravan in the gardens of the square and
learned to call Michele Morgan and Ralph Richardson by their first names. Miss
Morgan, he learned, was herself the mother of a boy of three and had a brother
and sister still at school. Sir Ralph, who shared his caravan, would doze with
his hands joined over his waistcoat, his collar and tie hung up on a peg, and a
volume of Trollope on the table in front of him. Even more exciting for the
child were the scenes shot inside London Zoo. While Carol Reed supervised the
meals of the sea-lions, Bobby learned how to ride on a dromedary. At the end of
their first day, Sir Ralph called the boy into the caravan. “Bobby, would you
like to come and see my mouse?” On his dressing table stood a green cage with
sand in the bottom. “Take care. It’s still rather fierce, but I’m going to tame
it.” The great actor was devoted to livestock: he had even asked if they would
give him the snake Bobby had to play with during the film after it was all over.
The child was taken next to the sound recording studio, where his voice was
added to the silent open air sequences. He had to lean over a chair and call out
“Papa! Papa! Au revoir, Papa!” After the first attempt – “That sounded very
good, Bobby. But remember that the first time you shout, the ambassador doesn’t
look up, so make your second ‘Papa’ more urgent. Do you understand?” A
technician says: “His shoes are squeaking against the back of the chair. I think
we had better take them off.” Carol Reed explains again how he wants it done and
again, Bobby turns white and feels ashamed when his mistakes are made clear to
him. The director says quickly: “Splendid, Bobby, splendid! That’s very good
