Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ballerina Margot Fonteyn attained perfection in one of the arts' most demanding disciplines. She had the title of Prima Ballerina Assoluta bestowed upon her and was a Dame of the British Empire. In this documentary portrait, made two years before her death, she remembers her life from her first dancing lesson when she was four years old, alongside recollections from figures such as Ninette de Valois, Frederick Ashton, Robert Helpmann and Rudolf Nureyev.
