Annabelle (Whitford) Moore performs one of her popular dance routines. She uses her dance steps and her long, flowing skirts to create a variety of visual patterns.
The Anna Belle Serpentine Dance was the first piece of film to be shown in color, which had been hand-drawn onto the film itself. It was produced by Thomas Edison’s company. Today the colors are strangely beautiful and it’s another key piece of film history.
One of the first films to use color, rotoscoped in frame by frame.
