More of Ruth Page's collection, 10 minutes long and silent. I think the costumes were Karinska. Probably early 1950s?

This won't run for me -- I'm on a Mac and using Firefox.  Anyone else having trouble?

I've found that I need to download the CFA videos to watch them - there's something off about the encoding. And, I have to use a generic, open source player like VLC MediaPlayer, not QuickTime which has trouble with the downloaded video.

 

I should add that it sometimes does work in Safari.

From the CFA website:

 

BROWSER COMPATIBILITY 

Having trouble getting your video to load and play? First troubleshooting step is to try a new web browser. Our streaming videos work best in Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer web browsers. This is because our streaming videos have a customized H.264 codec and these browsers best handle this format.
