  • Description

    "Part of a dancer's life may be easy going, but when it comes to the acrobatic-treat-'em-rough style, life is hard - "

    A man dressed in a suit dances with a girl in a bathing suit style velvet costume. High angle shot of the couple as he holds her in the air - she bends over backwards. The dance involves various lifts, balances, jumps, twirls, etc. "There's nothing quite like our Ultra Rapid Camera for smoothing down the rough edges, though - " Slow motion footage of the woman being twisted around the man's body. Filmed in the Pathe Studio.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 540.

    Note: compared to most "treat 'em rough films" of this era this is very sedate!
