Annette Kellerman says she never needed a stunt double in any of her films.

She also talks about her infamous swim in a pool full of crocodiles on the shoot for the silent feature A Daughter of the Gods (Herbert Brenon, USA, 1916). The Bill Fox she refers to is film's producer William Fox.

This excerpt from Kellerman's oral history was recorded in 1974, a year before her death. The interviewer is Joel Greenberg.
