The Margot Fonteyn Story is the only authorized documentary about British ballerina Dame Margot Fonteyn, released during the year of her death. Fonteyn herself serves as the narrator, recalling the high points of her nearly 50-year career in dance. Features interviews with Rudolf Nureyev, Robert Helpmann, and Frederick Ashton. Includes home movies, archival footage, and a personal discussion about her marriage to a Panamanian diplomat. Some of the dance excerpts come from Sleeping Beauty, Ondine, and Giselle.
