While I was hanging around up there waiting for the shot to be set up, I felt myself drop by about a foot and I thought oh my god my luck is running out, this is it. So I called down to the floor manager, ‘excuse me, I just felt the wire give just a little bit, and when I come down could you just be sure that you really let me down easy.’ I heard the word go back along the length of the studio, ‘Joe when she comes down, let her down easy, let her down really easy.’ At which point I dropped like a tone of bricks to the stage, and there was this odd silence and I let fly with a few Anglo-Saxon four letter words, which Disney had certainly never heard before. Then Joe’s voice from way at the back of the studio yelled, ‘is she down yet!’

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
These are some fun fucking facts
