I found this among the film listings in the Ruth Page Collection on line at the Chicago Film Archives. Here is the text -

This film represents a short excerpt of Talley Beatty dancing. The notes on the film canister and leader suggest he may be dancing an excerpt from "Possessed," a Ruth Page ballet choreographed in 1932. They also suggest that this excerpt may be intended for submission to NBC as part of a television special or as demonstrative of potential works to be performed live. The sets seem to match those of a 1938 performance of "Variations on Euclid," but it is not clear if this was filmed at that time or in 1950, when Beatty also participated in a performance of "Americans in Paris" during a European tour by Ruth Page & Bentley Stone's company.
