Opening sequence and last half were shot at Halleâ€™s residence in Pound Ridge, New York. The barbecue itself was held at the Old Mill. The party most likely started with a barbecue lunch at the mill, then everyone moved on to Halleâ€™s house for an afternoon of croquet, archery, and conversation on the lawn. Individuals tentatively identified: Clara Mayer? (green jacket, 02:37) Eduard Heimann? (bottom right, 03:19) Frieda Wunderlich?
