Shot from raised position of cameraman; lights set up; director sitting & leaning forward w/ elbows on knees; and several men standing around watching; pan to the 3 actors (1 is Jack Buchanan). Buchanan & another actor stand up & exit.

    CU Actor talking to other; Anthony Holles as elderly part. MS director signals w/ hand; as cameraman turns the huge camera on tripod. Cut to general view of room; w/ actresses in bathing suits sitting by the pool; some people swimming in pool; many people standing around; the action going on on opposite side.

    Then; outdoor shot of cast / crew taking a break - sitting on the grass; relaxing; some distance from house & buildings.
