Major Barbara (1941)

   “Deborah was offered the part in Major Barbara. It was her first appearance in films, and it led her on to stardom. She not only made a hit in the Shaw film, but was soundly hit herself. She became known as England’s most slapped actress.
   You may remember that in Major Barbara she was roughly slapped by big bully Bob Newton. Pascal, stickler for realism, insisted that the slap should be good and hard, and no phoney business. Bob just could not do it. The scene was shot over and over again, without success.
   At last, Deborah told Bob she would rather have one good hearty bang and get it over, than a series of jabs which, although not knock-outs, were none the less irritating and disturbing. So, screwing up all his courage, Bob let her have a buffet which knocked her down and made her mouth bleed.” (1940s press)
