THE GAY PARISIAN and SPANISH FIESTA. the former obviously documenting GAITE PARISIENNE and the latter, CAPRICCIO ESPAGNOL. (Danilova is in this second film, tho' as Dale points out, was not in the GAITE film.)
i've never seen the latter ballet live, but i can attest to the fact that the PARISIENNE ballet is truncated in the film.
i would have thought the ny pub.lib. for the perf. arts would have copies of these films, but i don't see that to be true, so i can't 'paste' the full credits.
here's how the library lists the spanish ballet's credits. if mem. serves argentina aooears in the film too:
Capriccio espagnol : Chor: Leonide Massine in collaboration with Argentinita; mus: N. A. Rimsky-Korsakov; lib: Leonide Massine; scen & cos: Mariano Andreu (setting and costumes the same as those originally designed for Fokine's ballet Jota aragonesa, produced in 1937). First perf: Monte Carlo, Théâtre de Monte Carlo, May 4, 1939.//First New York perf: Oct 27, 1939.
