    Extracts from the musical "Rio Rita" starring George Gee and Leslie Sarony.

  • Description

    Extracts from the new musical play "Rio Rita" at the Prince Edward Theatre in London.

    Story title is superimposed over shots of the chorus line dancing. Solo dancer in a sequinned outfit performs a balletic dance. Dancer in a tutu performs a routine with chorus girls posing behind her. More dancing ensues.

    "Leslie Sarony fits in some fast and fancy footwork..." In a top hat and tails he dances in front of a line of chorus girls. He does a tap routine. "But George Gee had a rough time with the girls when he really got going." George does quite a camp dance routine then the chorus girls pull him around the stage by his chin.
