This page describes the following scene (#227) where Gus is
feverish from his wounds and Pea Eye enters the fast-running river
in an attempt to float past the Indians and go for help. As part of the
pre-production planning, this page describes the duties of each of
the relevant departments for this scene. The special effects team is
notified to have rain towers, water tank controls for flooding, and
outboard motors to simulate water turbulence. Notes to the set
department say the cave needs to be reinforced to prevent collapse
and to wardrobe that the actors need wetsuits under their costumes.
All these preparations are invisible to the viewer, but are necessary
to create the illusion the storytellers want the viewer to see.
