1930s, 1940s

Sally Rand wearing a long gown descending a set of stairs with two large feather fans. Once at the bottom she begins spinning them around in various motions and swiftly walking from one side of the stage to the other on the tips of her toes in a ballet like manner. She goes off the stage and behind a screen where she appears to be undressed. She comes back on stage and dances, but always with one fan covering her body. MCUs of her face show her to be smiling. She strikes a final pose, which appears nearly birdlike.
