When North Meets South -- On the Edge of a Roof!

Philadelphia -- Miss Helen Knott, New York Society girl, and Mr. Chester Towne, member of a prominent southern family of Jacksonville, Florida, execute their spectacular "cocktail" dance on the edge of the roof of the Bellevue Stratford Hotel, where they are featured dance artists. In addition to the 'cocktail' dance, the young couple originated the 'Danzon,' a dance done to the Cuban Rhumba rhythm. (1932)
