For October 2018 Milestone offers 50% off on four extraordinary dance films!
Anna Pavlova, the most famous ballerina of all time, embodies a free-spirited mute in Lois Weber’s spectacular (in every sense) The Dumb Girl of Portici.
Denied leading roles in Hollywood, actress Anna May Wong traveled to England to star as Shosho, the laundress whose sultry dancing captivates London in E.A. Dupont’s Piccadilly.
One of the most joyful documentaries ever filmed, George Nierenberg’s No Maps on My Taps celebrates great African-American dancers Bunny Briggs (dancing above), “Sandman” Simms, and Chuck Green.
The enchanting ceremonial dances of Bali are preserved in glowing two-strip Technicolor in the 1935 idyll, Legong — filmed on location by the Marquis de la Falaise.
