A friend pointed out that none of the clips in the American Masters Balanchine documentary exceeded 60 seconds, apparenly the standard for audio/video fair use. I hope that for this project, rights holders grant permissions for longer excerpts.
There isn't a great deal of footage available on Tanny, certainly not available to the public, but there is fairly tangible evidence that there is more under wraps as it were, in the NY Public Library and Jerome Robbins Library collections (as mentioned in this thread: http://balletalert.i...quil-le-clercq/
La Valse (in many ways Le Clercq's signature role) is apparently on film:
Note the documentary website is at this URL as well, and there's some actual project info on this page:

There's actually quite a bit of Le Clercq on celluloid, including what's in the NYPL. It's just not out in the open/commercially available.

I'm also sure that most readers here are aware of the film of Le Clercq/D'Amboise dancing Robbins' Afternoon of a Faun, as part of the VAI DVD The Art of the Pas de Deux, Part 3.
Edited to add:
VAI also released said pdd in the D'Amboise compilation, Portrait of a Great American Dancer.
