Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's "The Red Shoes" of 1948 is simply one of the most extraordinary and important British films in cinema history. An exuberant, lavish, daring, technicolor epic that has influenced generations of filmmakers, artists, and aspiring ballerinas. Although made in the late forties, "The Red Shoes" is decades ahead of it¹s time. It is shown regularly on television and is regarded as the definitive film about the world of dance. Brian Easdale, who won an Oscar for his score, developed his sensuous, esoteric style whilst studying Indian music in Calcutta and was described by Powell as "the ideal collaborator". for Powell went on to create soundtracks for "The Small Back Room", "The Elusive Pimpernel", "Gone to Earth", "The Battle of the River Plate", "Peeping Tom" and "Queens Guards".
