  • Short Summary

    Dacia performs an eccentric "Eastern" dance at the Great Ypres Ball.

  • Description

    c. 1921

    Subtitle reads: "At the Great Ypres Ball - Albert Hall". London (may be shot at the Albert Hall but also possibly restaged in Pathe studio).

    Intertitle reads: "A dance of homage by the Slave Girl (Dacia) before the great Queens of the Ancients." Dacia performs a rather eccentric "Eastern" dance on what looks like a stage set. Woman in an elaborate head-dress sits on a throne and looks down at Dacia. Other women in their finery watch the dance. Short item - there was probably more.
