What a film debut.  Does he keep a cassette of this for his grandkids? :-)

Where was it shot?  Looks like a public park of some kind.

Would this be the Ennis-Brown House by any chance?  The exterior is made
of modular concrete cubes on a Mayan motif (the experimental concrete
compound Wright used has fared terribly in the polluted Hollywood air)
but the interior is classic FLW with long high halls, wood and brass and
leaded glass.  I've toured it a couple of times, the atmosphere is
unbelievable, and I know the E-B foundation would be tickled to toss
film money into the restoration fund.
