• Short Summary

    Rubber-limbed contortionist Nanette twists into some alarming postures in the studio.

  • Description

    Nanette. Part of the FROM AD TO BBC issue.

    Probably filmed in the Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of the "charming, 17-year-old contortionist and acrobatic dancer" performing her act. She twists into several rather alarming postures, including a backbend where her feet are flat on the ground but her torso is twisted right over so she can pick up a hankie with her teeth - yikes!
