Ok.  Problem solved.  Steve, your command served as the best basis.
Moritz, your investigation of the Google Photos magic also clarified things
for me.  In the end, I used the following:

ffmpeg -i $INMOV -c:a copy -c:v libx264 -vf fps=fps=60 -crf 15 -preset slow

Thanks for all of your help.  Since you both took time & helped, is it ok
if I send you $15 each?  I can send via PayPal, Venmo, or Square Cash to
the email addresses your subscribed to this list with.  Just respond on
this thread with your preferred payment service.
