The dancers are wonderful!
18 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best and most meaningful aspect of the film is the Vampire Dance, performed by Alice Eis and Bert French. Mr. French choreographed the dance, based on a poem and a painting. The young man in the film sees the error of his ways by viewing their 'morality tale' dance.

Miss Eis and Mr. French, who were married and had 3 children, were famous vaudeville dancers, performing all over America and Europe. Information about them can be found in the New York Library, The Smithsonian, and The George Eastman House (where the original of this film is kept).

This is a wonderful film, historic in its portrayal of life in the U.S. in 1913, and very funny even when unintentionally so. It was filmed in Florida because there was no big Hollywood as yet. Scenes were often filmed outdoors to use the light; examples of this can be seen during indoor restaurant scenes, where palm trees and waiters' serving towels are waving in the breeze.

You'll have great fun watching this film, especially if you can add appropriate old-fashioned piano music as background. My loving regard for the two dancers results from the fact that they were my maternal grandparents!! Nonetheless, they were ground-breakers of their day. Totally dramatic, and delightful.
