My computer guru is up visiting for a few days and I had him upload this 10 minute film of Mildred Dilling onto youtube. You can find it at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNFtRU_c2Ec or just go to youtube and type in Mildred Dilling. It’s titled Harp Performance recorded in 1940.
The film was made in 1940 and was intended as a film short to be shown in movie theaters before a main feature. The original intent was to make a short film for each instrument of the orchestra. But only 4 films got made, and thankfully, one of them was of Mildred playing. She was 47 years old at the time she made this and in peak form.
I’m not sure but I believe that each of the three pieces she plays has been truncated
