Sun worshipers at beach sunset

I think it was in the ’70s and I thought it was a Woody Allen comedy movie (but it isn’t Sleeper). I saw it on TV, so it may have been a TV show rather than a movie.

In the scene, a traveler (time traveler?) is walking with his friend, a local guide, on the beach at sunset. They join a group of people at the water’s edge, wailing that the sun (sun god) is leaving them and beseeching the sun to return.  Further down the beach is a small crowd jeering the sun worshipers, hurling insults.  The traveler asks is friend “who are those guys?”.  The friend replies in disgust “Oh, it’s those damn Moon worshipers!”

    1. Oh my gosh, that’s it. I didn’t expect an answer, so I didn’t check until today. The movie was on Amazon Prime, so I was able to watch it. The dialogue about the sun setting was as I remembered it, but I mis-remembered about who the hecklers were. I don’t think I was able to watch the whole thing because my older brother thought I was too young to watch Ursula Andress, so it’s nice to watch it again. Thanks, I never would have figured it out!!!
