For the protection of travelers, all domestic airports use electronic devices and X-ray equipment to check passengers and hand-carried luggage. Film can tolerate some X-ray exposure but excessive anounts will resutl in objectionable fog (imcrease in base film density, and noticeable increase of grain). This is particularly true for very high-speed films. In the United States, passenger inspection inflicts only very low level rates of XS-rays which should not perceptibly fog most films fog most films (inspection stations can vary in radiation intensity). However, the effects of X-rays are cumulative, so repeated X-ray inspections can lead to an increase of fog and grain. Be cautious. You can avoid this danger to unprocessed film by hand carrying it, including film in cameras, and asking the attendant to hand inspect it, thus bypassing the X-rays.

A Talk by Bill Fraker
My first picture was at Universal with Simone Signoret, and Katherine Ross, called Games, with Curtis Harrington directing and George Edwards producing. James Pratt, the production manager at Universal, cllled me and said that he had been watching me for a long time. He said, “You’re a first cameraman and you did it on your own. You’re the type of guy they need for this picture.” The I panicked because I knew I had to go in and run a crew and Universal had their own family like they do now. But I said to myself, “I don’t care. I’ve got to do it anyway. I got to do it because you only get one or two shots in your whole life to become what you want.” You have to keep preparing youself for what your goal is and then when you get the chance to achieve that goal, you have to go out and do it. Right or wrong. That has stopped a lot of talented people. Anyway I did it and it didn’t stop from that point on. For some reason, something generated a momentum and I don’t think I had a week off from that point for three years. Next I did a picture with Mark Rydell called The Fox. I’m very proud of that film; it’s one of my favorites. Then came The President’s Analyst with Teddie Flicker directing. Then came Fade In, a film with Burt Reynolds, followed by Rosemary’s Baby, Bullitt, Paint Your Wagon, and then I directed my first film, Monte Walsh.

The chase sequence sort of established a genre for automobile chase sequences. I got a lot of notoriety and a lot of acclaim for it. I give all the credit to Peter Yates, the director, and Frank Keller, the editor, who won an Oscar for the picture. The chase took three to five weeks to film. We could only tie up certain streets of San Francisco at certain times. We would do the chase periodically whenever we could get a clearance on a location; sometimes one day a week, sometimes two. Every inch of that chase sequence was choreographed; we literally drove each shot and then we got out and we walked the shot. We talked about each problem we felt we might have and then Peter and I would set the camera where we wanted. I think the success of the chase was the result of the placement of the camera. Because the audience auctually felt that they were participating in that chase. They were no longer observers. In old chase sequences, you would take a camera and pan as the car went by. Peter got the idea of placing the camera inside the car subjectively. So you got a feeling of participation. Also it gave you an outlet to take an automobile and smash it against another automobile; things that you always have wanted to do ever since you started to drive a car. And now you finally got a shot to do it. The secret of Bullitt is that shot it at twenty-four frames per second but the cars were actually going 100-120 miles per hour. There was no cheating, we didn’t speed up the camera. Also, as I say, putting the camera inside the car and letting the audience participate was important.<BR>
For the exteriors of that sequence, there were no lights at all; we just shot. That was another innovation at that time: moving away from Hollywood and taking equipment up there, like arc lights and such, but then not using them. People said it couldn’t be done but I had been doing it for years on commericals. But you see, at the time, it was a transitional period. We were just getting started as young cameramen. You would go to work for a major studio and they would hand you your equipment list. And you’d say, “What’s this? I didn’t order this.” And they’d say, “This is what you’re going to take.” And you’d reply, “I don’t want this equipment.” And the’d say, “If you do a picture with this studio, you take this equipment.” That was always a big fight and it still is today. It’s the bureaucracy horseshit that I can’t deal with. I don’t want to deal with it and I won’t deal with it. With the studios, you’ve got that overhead system os that you never get dollor-for-dollar value. The production ends up being charged twenty-five to forty percent overhead. And for what?
