About

DIXIE PARADISE is a sensual experience, emphasizing through movement and sound, the exciting, elemental attraction of a dance craze. This wild and uninhibited dance frankly calls forth our basic rhythmic impulses. The dance crosses class and racial lines in making its universal appeal. The film was shot in a Harlem night club called Paradise. –F. M.
