Lovely dance with a vase of smoking incense as a prop - various contortions and gymnastics.
This item has been spliced on to the END of Pathe Sound Pictorial issue number 726. Believe that it was originally the third item in the reel.
Edna Squire-Brown performs "The Dance of the Vase". Introductory intertitle reads: "Lithe and sinuous, slim figured flexible youth, with no bones to speak about, and a dance that goes back to the days when the old Temples were young."
Edna performs quite a sexy dance in the Pathe Studio. She holds a glass globe, bending over backwards whilst holding it above her head. The vase seems to have incense inside. Edna performs all kinds of gymnastic feats as she dances - a very flexible woman! It is quite a graceful dance. She wears a sparkly sequinned trimmed outfit - bikini style.
Her dance is intercut with shots of a Hindu temple (I think) with a shadowy figure sitting meditating on the roof (?)
Some of Edna's poses are almost contortions. Very nice little sequence.
