Storyline

In this romantic drama, a plain, lonely secretary wins three dance lessons. Her handsome instructor tells her that she is quite talented and cons her into signing a long-term contract. She soon finds herself in love with him, and an affair begins. The normally cold-hearted instructor is surprised when he finds himself genuinely returning her affections. Trouble ensues when she dances with another instructor who gives her exactly the same sales pitch. Written by Jim Sadur <jsadur@keyflux.com>

I saw this film after I picked up the Soundtrack Album at a local five and dime in 1964. It had several haunting jazzy tracks and I grew to love this album. Then late one night in 1965 it came on television and I was there falling in love with this off the cuff little film. It had the bare bones feeling of every indie film I came to love in later years. Filmed in black and white, it came across the screen as a slice of life piece and etched its way into my soul forever. It is a thoughtful little film incensed with a raw reality from its film noir lighting, accentuated by interesting camera angles, and it's haunting score. I have long since lost that soundtrack, and have never seen this film as being available on video, and it's too bad, too. Because this is a film that captures what big city life in 1960's America was all about. Life, love and a touch of deception. It reminds me of the late John Cassavetes' early work in its style and execution, though it was not one of his projects. James Van Pelt of Tulsa, Oklahoma
