Similar footage to cut story showing Ginger Rogers posing for the press in costumes from the show 'Mame'.
Lots of shots on that fabulous cut-out moon! Ginger looks extremely nervous when the moon is hoisted up with her on it, but I think she is just acting - she's too much of a pro to really let us see her like that. She models a few costumes not seen in cut story, and poses in a Father Christmas hat and beard.
We then see her doing some tap dancing across the stage for photographers and doing some high kicks - go, girl! She definitely has a dancer's posture - very elegant.
Posed shots of Ginger talking on a telephone - looks like prop from the show.
This is really great stuff of Ginger working hard for the press - well worth a look!
