Here's a scan of the image in the Anatole Chujoy book, New York City Ballet from 1953 (it's a small halftone image in the book). The pose is different from the one that appears in the Balanchine documentray film, but it is definitely from the same series of shots. The Chujoy book only remarks that the bulk of the photographs are from "George Platt-Lynes and Walter E. Owen". These days each image would have to have a credit.

an interesting snippet about her relationship with Jerome Robbins, also in Sym C you can see Maria Tallchief. They danced so fast!
Thanks very much for finding this clip. I always thought it interesting that the Robbins documentary has much more personal information, and talk about Tanny, than the Balanchine documentary for American Masters - that one's devoid of any personal relationship talk. Robbins felt Le Clercq was his muse (as she was for Balanchine obviously). It's too bad the last little bit about Tanny is missing from this clip.
