Very Enjoyable and Entertaining!!, 3 November 2002
Author: jessicaf

A wonderful documentary about dance and some of the greatest dance film stars ever. Ive recently seen it and enjoyed it!But must say that I thought the dancing from the 70's and 80's wasn't a 'spectacular' as the dance numbers from the 30's and 40's. I rate it a 8/10 stars. ********
