• Short Summary

    The Nora Jackson Dancers do a tap dance routine wearing sparkly helmets.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Now meet the famous Norah Jackson Dancers - from 'Femmes de Paris' Revue, in a fast-stepping number."

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots of a troupe of dancers doing a tap dance routine. They wear sparkly tops and shorts trimmed in black, plus some rather unlovely sparkly helmets with visors. The brisk tune is 'When the Guards Go By', and I would say they dance in the usual English style of tap - not especially stylish, though quite fun.
