  • Short Summary

    Famous ballroom dancers including Santos Casani, Jose Lennard, Barrie Oliver and Beryl Evetts.

  • Description

    The Baltimore is made easy and demonstrated by the leading stage and ballroom exponents. Barrie Oliver and Beryl Evetts demonstrate the latest dance on stage in a spotlight.

    Santos Casani and Jose Lennard join in. Alec Millar and Phyllis Haylor dance into the spotlight, then Maxwell Stuart and Pat Sykes followed by Frank Ford and Molly Spain. The lights go up on the dance floor and we see all six couples dancing around the room. Barrie Oliver and Beryl Evetts perform the Stage version in the centre of the dance floor whist the others look on. C/U of their feet. Quite a quirky little dance. "The Stage Baltimore, however, needed considerable modification to suit our Ballrooms. For instance - the smooth Ballroom Walk."

    C/Us of the feet of Barrie and Beryl as they demonstrate this step, then "the fascinating "Balti Chasse" is shown. "- the snappy "Collegiate" and "Blues Rock" are demonstrated, then the dainty "Drag Stomp." The same fundamental steps are demonstrated slowly. Then L/S of all the couples dancing around the room.

    End title reads: "For printed details of "The Baltimore" send a Postcard to Editor, Pathe's Eve's Film Review, 103, Wardour Street, London, W1. They will be sent free of charge. "Service with the Cinema"

    Note: flash-frame intertitles. I think that Barrie Oliver was known as "The Charleston King".
