One of many edification exercises by the team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger: the world of ballet, on stage and back of it. Enough canny showmanship intervenes to make it not too painful; even, in the art direction and cinematography (Jack Cardiff), quite pleasurable. And in "The Red Shoes Ballet" itself, some Busby Berkeley-isms suspend edification altogether. Moira Shearer, Marius Goring, Anton Walbrook. 1948.
