  • Description

    A saucy sexy "temptation dance."

    Against a curtained backdrop a man and a woman perform a flirtatious slinky dance in pagan wood nymph style outfits. She throws off her floaty scarf and he grabs it and screws it up, kneeling on the ground and looking sinister. He throws the scarf aside with a dramatic gesture. She wears a flimsy sparkly trapeze artist type outfit. He falls at her feet. She contorts her body, touches him and he springs up.

    Much twisting, turning, jumping, lifting the woman aloft, acrobatics, swinging each other around - general rough and tumble. Apache style stuff. He grabs her by the neck and swings her around.

    Was originally an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 415.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
