  • Short Summary

    Good dance item featuring Barrie Oliver and Betty Bolton who Charleston on a table top.

  • Description

    "Something new in fast dances by Barrie Oliver and Betty Bolton."

    We see the couple dancing on small table top. C/U of their legs as they dance. They do Charleston style movements. Top shot looking down on the table to show how little space they have to dance. "Barrie Oliver calls this his "Table d'hôte" Dance - (There were 220 steps per minute for our slow-camera to catch up)" Slow motion footage - C/U of legs as they dance. They end the dance by Betty jumping into Barrie's arms and sticking her leg out.

    Cute, fun item. Might be good for illustrating fun in the "Roaring Twenties".

    I believe that Barrie was known as "The Charleston King"!

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 358.
