    "milling about around a parked car" - it's the Hillman estate car that belonged to the Drummond family.

    Reducing this clip's current date range, Jack Drummond was murdered in 1952, and Gaston Dominici was convicted of the murders in 1954.

    The clip can clearly, then, be narrowed down to 1952-54.
