There's Reason in Rhumba (1939) | BFI National Archive

British Film Institute


Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 12 min.
There might well be reason in rhumba| but there's also plenty to ridicule in this romanticised rendition of its origins. Featuring a 110% accurate portrayal of life aboard a Spanish ship sailing to the New World of the Americas| it was one of six “dance-spectacle entertainments revealing the history and origin of popular dance rhythms”. Keen viewers might spot that the heralded “Parsons Multiscene System” is basically a big mirror to give an illusion of depth to the scene. This video is part of the Orphan Works collection.
