and Friends Milan Jazz 74321-15314-3, a French issue, but you'll need a
player capable of playing European PAL and/or SECAM tapes to use it even if
you can find it. I expect it's deleted, but entering the title in the FNAC
website would soon clarify this. It's a delightful performance with the
diminutive Dixie Dunbar capering around a mob of chorus boys. As she is
on-stage with Waller, the sequence must have been cut for Southern
distribution, so prints probably exist without the Waller sequence.
