  • Short Summary

    Fantastic dance routine - Veronica emerges from a shell and dances for a man in a diving suit!

  • Description

    On a stage set representing an underwater scene a large shell opens up to reveal Veronica the speciality dancer! She climbs out of the shell holding a large ostrich feather fan. She wears a tutu and does balletic style dancing. Also on the set is a man in a diving suit!

    As Veronica does a dying swan routine the man stands beside her. Veronica does some contortionist stunts, acrobatics, gymnastics etc. The man in the diving suit looks amazed! He holds his hands up in wonder. Veronica bends her body into all sorts of shapes. Very short C/U of the man looking out of his mask. Veronica climbs back into the shell and closes it behind her.

    Fantastic!

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 656.

    Safety copy exists.

    Dancer is probably Veronica Evans.
