In this ever uglier, more terrifying and bereft world, you owe it to yourself to catch some beauty. What better way to do so than by seeing the magnificently restored new print of THE RED SHOES?

More essential questions:

“Why do you want to dance?”

“Why do you want to live?”

I had the pleasure of interviewing director Michael Powell’s widow, the eminent film editor, Thelma Schoonmaker, in GAY CITY NEWS. Read it here .

Here’s a gallery of more Moira Shearer, so bewitching she was like a Vivien Leigh who could dance, who made one of the most spectacular film debuts ever in THE RED SHOES, to lift your day.
