She could have forced him to make the move but declined because of his status. I saw the film. He touched the piece for sure, but he had lightning fast reflexes and his hand FLEW back from the piece, and Polgar's face showed the shock, clearly she saw him touch the piece and withdraw. It would have lost instantly if she had called him on it.

Luis Palau was editor of Revista Ajedrez (Buenos Aires, Argentina) until his death. In an article he offered his memories about this game: Kalabar was a young man, who paid more attention to some postcards than to the board, so he pushed the pieces in a careless way. For that reason, Kalabar took his King instead of ...[text shortened]... did not offered to take back the move, because they were playing in a national team tournament.
