Dancer/actress Radha Sri Ram had a role in the movie “The River,” shot entirely in India by noted director Jean Renoir. Her saree (I’m picturing it in red), is interesting because it might be printed or resist dyed and looks like a bandhni pattern. What do you think?
According to the newspaper caption, Radha was considered one of the top three classical dancers at the time, and she had a degree in Sanskrit! She was truly a natural beauty; note the lack of makeup – not even mascara. The Technicolor film played in New York City for 34 weeks and won several international awards, though few remember it today. I’ll watch it soon as a computer-view on Amazon.
