For the scene in which Gloria Swanson
is covered in bees, the bees were taken to the location in dry ice, which made them sleepy. While in this almost comatose state, and with the light turned out, they were placed on Miss Swanson's shoulders, arms and brimmed hat. Then the hot lights were switched on, and as the bees warmed up they began to crawl and move about. Once filming of the scene was completed, Swanson was applauded by the crew. See more
