Episode Summary

The Light Fantastic
Lauren Bacall and John Forsythe star in this lighthearted look at dancing in the United States. The show is subtitled "How to Tell Your Past, Present, and Maybe Even Your Future Through Social Dancing," and the idea is that the lives we live are reflected on the dance floor. John, who appears as a social commentator, tries to prove that the depression produced the Big Apple; that the Cha-Cha, Bossa Nova and Conga are the result of pleasant Latin-American relations; and that the gradual decline of segregation can be traced through the Cake Walk, Castle Walk and Lindy. Lauren portrays an interested observer, mostly interested in John, but she soon decides to prove a point of her own, that even the Minuet, Black Bottom, Hully Gully and Twist are clues to the emancipation of women.moreless
