  • The Italian version of this newsreel states at the beginning that this film was made in Berlin in 1926, and also has extra footage, including Pavlova and her Beaux backstage blowing out the candles on the little Christmas Tree that was one of the props in the ballet 'Christmas'. The date and place is borne out by the fact that the Pavlova Company did tour Germany at the end of 1926; part of this tour involved a long season at the Theater des Westens in Berlin, and it was in the Grand Foyer of that theatre that the Company's Christmas Party was held.
