Description
"I simply wanted to make a permanent record on film of some of the most important works of the most perfect living art: The Dance," engineer Victor Jessen once said. Thus began Jessen's career as a documenter—some might say bootlegger—of mid-20th-century ballet. To make this short film, Jessen meticulously edited his black and white footage of a 1954 performance of Léonide Massine's comic ballet Gaîté Parisienne, which features the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo's Alexandra Danilova, Frederic Franklin, and Leon Danielian. Extras include a documentary on Jessen, and an interview with Franklin.
