Storyline

A woman in ballet slippers wearing a large white hat and a long white dress - with ruffles, puffy sleeves and petticoats - dances across water with roiling waves behind her. She holds the edges of the skirt with her hands, lifting and twirling, sometimes exposing her bloomers and a dark garter on one leg. Her style combines ballet with the exuberant kicks and twirls of a burlesque dance hall. With churning waves behind her, the water seems to wash beneath her feet. The film of the dancer, "M'lle. Cathrina Bartho" (1899), is superimposed on that of the water, "Upper Rapids, from Bridge" (1896). Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Nymph of the Waves (1900)

This early film takes less than a minute and shows a woman in a long white dress dancing as the image behind her moves at way too fast of a speed. Again, it's important to remember when watching these early movies that they didn't feature any type of story but they were simply made for people to watch for a nickle. With that in mind, there's certainly nothing too special here, although there's no question that "dance" movies were quite popular with the public since so many of them were made. This one here certainly doesn't stand out among the crowd so those interested in these early movies will be the only ones that need to check this out.
