• Short Summary

    Lovely exhibition dance by Myrtle Winter dressed as a butterfly.

  • Description

    Myrtle Winter performs "The Dance of the Butterfly".

    C/U of a piece of decorated fabric. It flutters like butterfly wings then Myrtle emerges. Various shots of her dance - it is rather lovely. The costume is beautiful - sequinned bodice and shorts with silk "wings" attached to Myrtle's body with sequinned thongs. Very fetching!

    At one point in her dance Myrtle lies on the ground and flutters her wings. The dance is acrobatic and graceful. Very sweet. Myrtle lies down on the floor with her wings covering her at the end of the dance.

    The dance is filmed against a curtained backdrop, probably in the Pathe Studio.
