  • Description

    United States of America.

    L/S of a crowded dance floor where the dancers all wear stilts. Couples move around holding on to each other. C/U of the bottom of the stilts as one of the male dancers kicks his legs out. They are presumably doing the Charleston.

    "Like the lift girl - they're full of ups and downs - " L/S of the dance floor as one of the dancers takes a fall - her partner hangs on to her and almost manages to pull her out of the splits. Someone eventually has to give assistance. Low angle shot of the dancers. Couples fall over and the bouncers help them back up again.

    Quirky and silly - it made me laugh out loud.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 405.
