A candid scene during the summer shoot of Flat Love, starring amusing D.H. Johnson and lovely Alise Shoemaker. Besides Flat Love being a silent film with voice over, notice the burdensome sound equipment; a perfect choice to add stress to Mr. cameraman Javier Ruiz Gomez's superb framing work.
The director requested a quiet and virginal beach spot in Long Island. To his amusement and crew's delight, production chose the picturesque and little frequented Connie Island. The beach was packed with humans that summer afternoon. The only clear spot in the entire beach was a 10 feet section of the sore loaded with rotten clams releasing a deathly odor that scared children and fisherman alike. Production decided wisely to shot right in there.
