I haven't listed the original SAB at www.brooksdancefilms.com since I am in the process of updating it for the 75th anniversary but I suppose if someone were really anxious they could have a copy with the caveat that another edition is on the way.

The film has fascinating reminiscences by Kent, Tallchief, and Taras, but I especially love hearing Tanaquil LeClerq's deep patrician voice as she describes Doubrovska as "very chic, very elegant, and what I would like to look like." We don't see her speaking, but her voice plays against a beautiful photo of her holding a flower bouquet.
Yes -- allegra Kent's recollections of Doubrovska are real revelations.
