Summary
Jerome Robbins directs a rehearsal of a dance reconstructed from the original choreography of I'm old fashioned, a duet performed by Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth in the film You were never lovelier. Bart Cook and Sara Leland teach the dance to Peter Martins and Suzanne Farrell. The dancers, Robbins and pianist Richard Moredock watch the original dance in an excerpt taken from a PBS documentary on Fred Astaire, which featured Jerome Robbins as an interviewee. For the beginning of this rehearsal, see *MGZIA 4-6161 and *MGZIA 4-6135, and for the remainder, see *MGZIA 4-6163 and *MGZIA 4-6162. This dance was performed in the finale of Variations on I'm old fashioned. Leland, Martins and Farrell did not appear in the ballet's original cast.
