speaking of Grey, does everyone believe it is she in the GISELLE clip? to me - and i never saw her live - it doesn't look much like her but i suppose it could be the hairstyle etc.
You are quite right it is not Beryl Grey.

I wonder if these are in fact Liane Dayde and Michel Renault, who danced with the Bolshoi shortly after Beryl Grey was there?
There's a newspaper report from the time on Dayde's website.
Well spotted Jane.
Renault is familiar to me from the Serge Lido books and I checked Dayde with postcards rg posted last year.
If you compare the costumes in the film to those shown in the newspaper, there is a match. Dayde's coloured skirt does not show very well in the newspaper photograph as it is such a bad print.

The Albrecht in the British Pathe film discussed above (Beryl Grey in Giselle at the Bolshoi) looks very like Liane Dayde's partner from this film - maybe it is Liane in both clips?
