Hedy maintained that she and Spencer Tracy never hit it off. He grew irritated when she couldn’t understand English and she grew anxious because he slurred his words and she couldn’t understand him. When they worked together on I Take This Woman, Tracy found a way to pay the new star back for what he saw as her primness. ”I thought I’d fix Hedy one day. We had a scene where she had to sit on my lap. The night before we did the scene, I bought a big banana that wasn’t ripe yet and was pretty hard. I slipped the banana down the front of my pants, and when Hedy sat down on it, she let out a scream and jumped about ten fuckin’ feet in the air.”
