In line with the tantalizing idea of a commercial, restored version of this film mentioned in the two preceding posts, there's been a tantalizing glimpse of what that might look like on YouTube.

um, I posted that video Posted ImageDid they colorize it, I wonder? ...

Aha! I wondered whether that was a coincidence of names. Thank you for posting that clip, naryssa! (Yes, it does look colorized. But maybe it's just faded. Regardless, I didn't see a previous reference to it in this thread, and I wanted to be sure all of the lurkers - this thread has now been viewed over 1,000 times! - were aware of it.)

I wasn't aware they got fan mail! Good! The very few I met in the 70s complained, "Nobody knows who we are," although one great fan I knew then took delight in his retail-clerk job when he could hand a corps member their purchase and say, "There you are ..." and use the correct name, having learned it by studying the names in the programs for the performances he attended. (I saw enough performances that I could quickly work a dancer's name down to one of two or four, but he had them exactly worked out.)
