"A Summer Place" filmed in 1959 on the Monterey Peninsula.Monterey, CA -- Monterey native Doug Lumsden is a film buff who started the ''Monterey Movie Tours®" in June for his five-year-old company, Monterey Bay Scenic Tours. The three-hour, 32-mile loop covers sites from a selection of 200 scenes or films shot on location in Monterey Peninsula. Adding a twist, Lumsden screens the scenes that match the sites on video screens on board the 32-passenger bus. Among the films he covers are Clint Eastwood's ''Play Misty for Me," ''A Summer Place," ''Turner & Hooch," ''National Velvet," and ''Clash by Night." For ''Clash," he unreels the scene of Marilyn Monroe as a Cannery Row worker. ''With that clip, visitors get a feel for what it was like in a canning factory in the sardine capital of the world," said Lumsden. Another stop is a Pacific Grove mansion looking exactly like the Pine Island Inn, its role in ''A Summer Place." Reservations are required for the tours.
