Opening sequence: 25:37 to 26:17
Alonso's second variation. 27:00 to 27:38
...and a beautiful pic of the final tableaux with the original opulent backdrop. Stunning.

What a treasure of a film! Thanks for sharing. I also love the T&V sequences, especially the opening measures danced by Alonso & Youskevich. Judging by her T&V solo, one can tell that Alonso would absolutely hold her own against any female who has subsequently danced the role. Razor sharp.
God bless Ann Barzel!

All the other footage is precious too. Nijinska's Fille with Kriza, the ballerina in Petroushka, her 1957 appearance at the Bolshoi, the pics in Fall River Legend, Billy the Kid, Aleko, Chopiniana alongside Markova, and many others with different partenaires at times-(Dolin, Massine, Youskevitch, Romanoff, Robbins, Eglevsky, Bruhn, Kriza, Semenov, etc...).

There's a glimpse of Ballet Caravan Charade (Christensen?) near 18:03, and Ballet Theatre Petrushka at 24:38. The Theme & Variations clip (Ann Barzel's?) appears at 26:58, where the dancing looks more relaxed than it's presented today, more lived in. There's also a feeling of theater space on Ballet Caravan and Ballet Theatre stages that's smaller and more intimate and that highlights the essemble work nicely.
There is a fun introduction to "This Is Your Life"at 30:20 – an early tv series that had more of its share of awkward and embarrassing moments – and a second clip, of Sophie Fedorova, at 12:38.
