Plot Synopsis

Luna De Miel

Honeymooning in Spain with his bride Anna, Australian farmer Kit Kelly (Anthony Steele) offers a lift to a stranded motorist who they discover is a famous dancer. Learning that Anna is a former ballerina, Antonio asks her to join his company, but the newlyweds insist on continuing with their journey. Antonio meets them at every stop and persists with his efforts to persuade her to dance with him. Kit becomes increasingly jealous, more so when he finds Anna rehearsing with Antonio. Anna later dreams of dancing in Antonio’s ballet, but -’sleep-dancing’ out to the edge of the roof of the hotel – is rescued by Kit before the dance reaches its tragic conclusion. They leave Madrid to continue their honeymoon. Antonio announces that his dance company is about to embark on their own world tour, he will be looking for Anna as they travel.
