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>

a forerunner of sorts
20 January 2000 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

I have never met anyone who has ever seen or heard of this extremely obscure early-60's drama--it's not even listed in Leonard Maltin's book. I myself saw it years ago in the early 80's on a now-defunct local television station. I remember it so clearly because it felt very "indie" for a film from that time period: on-location filming with as-of-yet still unknown actors, and a "small" story (lonely young woman takes dancing lessons and begins to fall for her handsome but devious instructor). I'd love to view it again to see if it was really as effective as I remember it being; at any rate this lonely little flick will always have a place in my heart.

* As a postscript to this review, some 5+ years later, I have heard from a number of people associated either directly or indirectly with the making of Light Fantastic, and it's been great to find I am not the only person in the world who remembers the movie. The film even has something like 6 other ratings posted now, along with mine. I invite any and all of these people to post their own reviews and/or thoughts here as well. My little memory of it still posts all alone. But as it stands now, on 8/18/05, it looks like what we have here is possibly the smallest cult audience for a film yet!
