Dances from 1917 to the '40s with Veloz and Yolanda...
16 February 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Narrated by Art Gilmore and directed by Jean Negulesco for Warner Bros., this is a short illustrating the various dance tempos throughout the '20s to '40s era.

Among the dances, the Tango and Rhumba stand out as the most exotic displays of ballroom dancing--but there's also the One Step (1917), Charlston ('20s), Black Bottom, a popular Mexican waltz, and the Jitterbug.

Veloz and Yolanda give all the dances some extra flavor with their darkly Latin looks and body movements that flow with the music in a way that all great dancers are capable of. But the best segment is the exotic movements to the Rhumba.

Strange to see Jean Negulesco, a director later known for his strong dramatic films (JOHNNY BELINDA, ROADHOUSE), rather than musicals, but this must have been at the start of his career at Warner Bros. There is no story angle at all, just the dances.
