Summary:Shows Marcel Marceau performing and teaching students at his school. Together they demonstrate a mime's necessary training in body movement, gymnastics, dance, fencing and mime. Scenes of Marceau teaching are intercut with related scenes of him performing. Includes personal interviews with Marceau. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
