• Short Summary

    Three acrobatic dancers performing for Pathe.

  • Description

    Location unknown.

    Three girls - variety dancers performing. Girls are wearing short glittery dresses, shiny straw type hats, tap dancing shoes and glittery golden waistcoats. Various shots of the girls dancing.

    Girls dancing one after another - they change outfits and their dancing gets more acrobatic.

    All three girls together again doing tap dance number.

    Music is very lively and resembles Brahms' Hungarian Dances.

    The girl on the left of the trio is non other than Gretchen Franklin (who played Ethel Skinner in East Enders.) It is not very well known that she started as a dancer before moving on to acting. The dark haired girl in the middle was called Jean Paul. She was my landlady in Streatham where she ran a boarding house in the Sixties. She later moved to Croydon. She ttold me that she used to teach dancing for a while after she had stopped performing
