Diana Vreeland documentary, 2012Ballet Russes ballet clips included

Vreeland claimed to have met Diaghilev and Nijinsky, although she was infamous for stretching the truth at times, for impact. I haven't seen the film but it supposedly contains some rare Ballet Russes clips of Faun and other works. Vreeland tried to become a dancer in the 1920s, working mainly in music hall-type shows, I believe.

You can find Vreeland's account of Nijinsky, Diaghilev, Vernon & Irene, et al., attending her mother's salon in her memoir, "D.V." (edited by Robert Gottlieb). As Natalia notes above, don't forget your salt shaker.
