 I'm not sure you can attach an image - we are only able to point to a URL. I believe your message box is full - I just tried to PM you.

With the kind help of pherank, this is the image from the back of a pamphlet that I kept from her funeral.  I don't have a scanner so I just took a photo of it, and for some reason it seems to display sideways some of the time.

Thank you for scanning this - she looks gorgeous. Is this from the mid-1960s, I wonder?

Yes, it's a great image and well worth having. When I open it in Photoshop it displays vertically/portrait style, so I really don't know why some apps see it as a horizontal photo.

Below is a test to see if displays any better for some people, but it requires resaving the JPEG file and that always loses some data in the process...

How fun is that?!!! I envy anyone able to go. Perhaps this should be announced in the Heads Up board as well.

The trailer for the documentary "Afternoon of a Faun" which a few of you will be seeing soon. Anyway it looks stunning and heart wrenching:

Excellent!

I'm really encouraged by the fact that the footage being used of Le Clercq has been cleaned up, and film rate issues have been fixed: it does look like people will be seeing the clips at life-like speeds and with decent clarity.

Marvelous, Neryssa, thank you so much. I agree with pherank, the quality of the clips look very good now.

That was the first thing I noticed. I wonder if we have Martin Scorsese to thank for the digitization - I have always wanted to see clips of her in Symphony in C and - perhaps one of those clips is Le Clercq in Cinderella?  And I was not expecting to hear her speak - she had a beautiful voice too. I am quite overwhelmed by this trailer and the fact that this documentary has finally been made. It's about time.

Thank you. This review provided the trailer. I am pleased the documentary is balanced and "humane" regarding the topic of Balanchine himself. I don't think Le Clercq would have wanted it any other way.

How did I miss this longer clip of Le Clercq in La Valse posted last May (authorized by the Balanchine Foundation?):
