If there is a tennis scene on the beach, yes, it was inspired by Last Year at Marienbad. The music they always played along with the movie was Frank Sinatra's album Come Dance With Me. Other than that, my parents and these 2 couples (their dearest friends from the art/fashion/architecture world of NYC) always put together funny films. Dad may not appear in the movies since it may be he who is taking them." Nonnie Eilers Moore (1922 – 2009) was a fashion editor at Mademoiselle, Harper's Bazaar and GQ. Thomas LeVal Moore (1921 - 1990) interior and architectural designer Patricia Peterson New York Times fashion editor Gus (Gösta) Peterson (1923 - fashion photographer, http://www.nordstjernan.com/news/people/3205/ August 1963 according to 1989 notes.
