  • Short Summary

    The Greene Sisters perform an acrobatic dance routine - synchronised gymnastics.

  • Description

    "A dainty dance" performed by the Greene Sisters from the "Cosmo" and other cabarets.

    Two girls enter a studio through a curtained doorway. The pose with their hands in the air. They do cartwheels towards the camera. With the benefit of slow motion filming, the audience get a good look at the girls' knickers as their fringed skirts flop downwards as they cartwheel. The girls do various acrobatics including the splits, bending over backwards, high kicks, contortions, twirls, etc. The girls are dressed the same and their movements mirror each other.

    Rather charming!

    Doesn't look as though they are filmed in a cabaret setting - probably the Pathe studio.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review 449.

    Safety print exists - show print.
