5:45 - 6:00 Rehearse original angle with standins and people before process.

6:00 - 7:00 Dismiss people - director orders buffalo returned to 1st position - director felt that buffalo could be used to frame finale of fadeout but decided instead to use fountain for finale if it were moved closer to terrace and process screens. Considerable discussion as to feasibility of this move, and it was decided to move the fountain over the week-end, thus providing the frame the director felt he needs to complete the shot.
