One of the 50 films in the 3-disk boxed DVD set called "More Treasures from American Film Archives, 1894-1931" (2004), compiled by the National Film Preservation Foundation from 5 American film archives. This film has a running time of 7 minutes, an added music score, and is preserved by the George Eastman House. See more »
I know a dancer trained by someone trained by Martha Graham. What she says of what she learned touches me deeply, and you can see it in nearly every move, even every move not made.
Martha choreographed this for a "studio" known for its casual approach. And I knew the original photography and print would be good, so I expected something special.
It is not. I can only believe that she was marginally involved with this, or was constrained in some way. If a passion of yours is dance in film, and you seek either excellence in dance or in how dance is filmed, don't bother to seek this out.
