Black Tights DVD
Balletomanes have forever cherished this compilation of tales told through dance, with Maurice Chevalier serving as narrator. "The Diamond Cruncher" stars Zizi Jeanmarie as a female mobster in love with Dirk Sanders; Roland Petit dances the role of "Cyrano de Bergerac": "A Merry Mourning" stars Cyd Charisse and Petit in a tale of murder and love; and in "Carmen," Bizet's story is given a marvelous dance translation with Jeanmarie and Petit. 125 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English mono.
