The Red Shoes

After hearing wonderful things about the 1948 film 'The Red Shoes', I decided to watch it a few months ago.  I loved it so much, I re-watched it and made a few screen caps for you all to enjoy and to hopefully encourage you to watch it yourself.  Basically, it's about Victoria Page, a young ballet dancer, and her pursuit to become a prima ballerina.  There's certainly more to the story, but I won't delve into it much deeper... you'll just have to watch it yourself.

The entire film was absolutely gorgeous, with the most stunning set designs and costumes.  Psshh... I would wear Victoria's performance dresses out regularly!  Not to forget, the dancing (duh)-- it was lovely and makes me wish I had not given up ballet when I was just a naive young-ling.  Anyway, prepare yourself for many screen caps-- like I said, the film is gorgeous!

so much to enjoy in this moment.

wuuut... so pretty!

yuus, dancing with a newspaper man!
