Red Shoes, The: 2 Disc Edition - The Criterion Collection

The Red Shoes, the singular fantasia from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (Black Narcissus, ~~The Small

Back Room~~), is cinema's quintessential backstage drama, as well as one of the most glorious Technicolor visual feasts ever

concocted for the screen. Moira Shearer (The Tales Of Hoffmann, Peeping Tom) is a rising star ballerina romantically torn between an idealistic composer and a ruthless impresario intent on perfection. Featuring outstanding performances,

blazingly beautiful cinematography by Jack Cardiff (Black Narcissus, The African Queen), Oscar-winning sets and

music, and an unforgettable, hallucinatory central dance sequence, this beloved classic, now dazzlingly restored, stands as an enthralling tribute to the life of the artist.
