"The Idol Dancer", A Story of the Southern Seas, is a drama included in our program to illustrate the work of our star cinematographer Billy Bitzer.

This is the last film starring Clarine Seymour, in which she delivered a very good performance. She was a rising star, but unfortunately died just a month after the film's release. She was only 21.
