Rubber-limbed contortionist Nanette twists into some alarming postures in the studio.
Nanette. Part of the FROM AD TO BBC issue.
Probably filmed in the Pathe Studio, London.
Various shots of the "charming, 17-year-old contortionist and acrobatic dancer" performing her act. She twists into several rather alarming postures, including a backbend where her feet are flat on the ground but her torso is twisted right over so she can pick up a hankie with her teeth - yikes!
