• Short Summary

    French dancer Veronica shows us some of her moves - extremely flexible!

  • Description

    Full title reads: "And now meet Mdlle. Veronica from Folies Bergeres, Paris etc."

    "Just a melting of graceful bends and poses - the kind of acrobatics that must keep you plastic and fit - "

    Veronica wears a sexy fringed bikini and scull cap. She is very flexible indeed and strikes various painful looking poses! Verging on contortionism. She uses a large ostrich feather fan as a prop. Acrobatic antics.

    "Incidentally - Mdlle. Veronica is the world's champion High Kicker - one of her feats was 100 high kicks in 50 seconds!" We see Veronica demonstrating her high kicks. Now she is wearing a flouncy white frock and hat (very Jessie Matthews!).

    Note: this may be "Veronica the Speciality Dancer" seen in a fabulous Eve's Film Review item of the same name.
