Wow. The mother and the troubled 2nd wife have the same spooky far away look in their eyes.
Katherine looks pretty and nice.
Olga looks pretty and less nice.
Mamah looks pretty but tragic.

Mamah seems somewhat mannish to me.

There may be something to that full jaw look. FLW was smitten with Marlene Dietrich, whose jaw is very full.

It would have been so much more meaningful, as well as accurate, to show first the famous yet underexposed preliminaries, and then those presentation sheets.

There is a shot, the last frame of the first video, showing a wooden gate (?) with what appears to be Wright's carved sign from the Oak Park studio. Is that an early gate at Taliesin ?

The wooden gate is long gone, but the stone wall and the Oak Park sign are still there. They are located at the entrance to the road around the base of the Taliesin hill ... very near to the dam and spillway.

Gate & stone marker

Yes, Rood is correct. Taliesin has the original Oak Park marker and the Oak Park Home & Studio has a reproduction. You can see it in Building Taliesin: Frank Lloyd Wright's Home of Love and Loss, by Ron McCrea. On p. 102 there is a photograph of workmen standing at the stone pier after putting the stone placard on there.

Wright Chat reader Education Professor reminded me that "First House" by Christian Bjone (2001, Wiley-Academy), contains material on Scully's own house.

Here is most of that matter. Note reference in the closing interview to Johnson's Glass House; see also the "Usonian-inspired" plywood furniture Scully made for his house.
