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. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: New, restored high-definition digital transfer; Audio commentary by film historian Ian Christie, featuring interviews with stars Marius Goring and Moira Shearer, cinematographer Jack Cardiff, composer Brian Easdale, and filmmaker Martin Scorsese; Introductory restoration demonstration with Scorsese; Profile of "The Red Shoes" (2000), a twenty-five-minute documentary; Video interview with Thelma Schoonmaker Powell, Michael Powell's widow; Gallery from Scorsese's collection of The Red Shoes memorabilia; The "Red Shoes" Sketches, an animated film made from Hein Heckroth's painted storyboards; Readings by actor Jeremy Irons of excerpts from Powell and Pressburger's novelization of The Red Shoes and the original Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale; Theatrical trailer; PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by Christie.
