How Many?

We may never know just how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, but, thanks to Infomercantile, we do know it took 28 takes for Dali and Halsman to create Atomicus.

"after each exposure, while the assistants mopped the floor and reclaimed cats, Halsman developed the film to see the progress in the composition. Accidents would happen. The water, intended for the cats, would cover Dali's face instead."
