The Red Shoes

February 12, 2009

We went to see the wonderful Powell and Pressburger film “The Red Shoes” a few days ago.

Filmed in the year of my birth, it was showing at the Pavilion Theatre film club in Hailsham, not too many miles from where we live. It tells the story of a young ballerina, torn between her love of dancing and her love for a man – the composer of the ballet from which the film gets its name.

By coincidence, Susanne Wolf has a pair of red high-heel tap shoes on show in her shop in Lewes, so I took this polaroid snapshot.
