Pointed Heels is a 1929 American Pre-Code early sound musical film from Paramount Pictures starring William Powell, Helen Kane, Richard "Skeets" Gallagher, and Fay Wray. This movie was originally filmed in color sequences by Technicolor, but today those color sequences only survive in black-and-white. One of these color sequences was the "Pointed Heels" ballet with Albertina Rasch and her Dancers.

The UCLA Film and Television Archive has a complete copy of this movie with all color sequences, but has not released it to anyone. Turner Classic Movies airs the black-and-white television copy of this movie. A print screened at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles in 2009 contained the color ballet sequence.
