One commonly recurring movie trope is the scene in which one character threatens another with a weapon such as a pistol, and then a tense conversation ensues, and the audience wonders whether the threatened character will be shot. Bows are sometimes used for this same purpose, which leads to ridiculous scenes such as the one we see here, in which a slip of a girl holds a big thick war bow at full draw for ages without getting the shakes, and at the end of this is able to shoot three arrows accurately. She can even talk normally as she stands there. Real longbowmen would draw and shoot as one movement, and not waste strength trying to hold at full draw.
Modern compound bows, with pulleys/cams and long strings make it possible to hold at full draw for a while, but with an old-fashioned longbow, even a strong man would develop the shakes after a couple of seconds at full draw.
