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>

Light Fantastic is indeed a good film
11 February 2008 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I don't know that I have much to say that hasn't been said here already. I used to have a pressbook for it, which said that star Dolores McDougal was actually the wife of either the producer or the director of LIGHT FANTASTIC. I don't recall seeing her in any other films. Barry Bartle, who played the dance instructor, did show up as a guest star on some sitcom in the late eighties, I think it was. I presume that he was primarily a stage actor, because that one sitcom is the only other appearance of him on film that I know of. The Jean Shepherd who plays the older dance instructor is the same man who wrote the beloved A Christmas STORY and other humorist writings.

I used to have this film on a home-recorded VHS from a local TV telecast in the early 1980s, but that tape has probably been lost to the ravages of time. The film was telecast locally as part of a TV syndication package entitled "Young Adult Theater."
