THE RED SHOES
1948, Park Circus/MGM, 133 min, UK, Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

A delirious, shimmering Technicolor dream of a movie, THE RED SHOES stars Scottish dancer-turned-actress Moira Shearer (in her film debut) as an aspiring ballerina caught between the maniacal, domineering passion of impresario Anton Walbrook and the equally-controlling love of composer Marius Goring. An awesome, superbly fluid blending of dance, a Golden Globe-winning score and Jack Cardiff’s Technicolor cinematography.
