Summary
Unedited footage, including repeated takes with slight differences in camera angle and commentary, recorded for the documentary Ruth Page: Once upon a dancer (1988). For the completed documentary, see: *MGZIA 4-1249 Cassette 129. Page conducts a tour of her apartment, pointing out and commenting upon various art objects or artifacts, some related to her ballets or to dance in general.
