Moira Shearer

Theres something about the hint of autumn in the air, that makes me itchy to watch all my old and beloved movies. Over the years I have collected quite a few, but there are more and more I want to get..and I keep adding to my list every day, new titles that I want to get hold of.

I seemed to have missed that one of my favourite films, The Red Shoes has been digitally remastered,
so that had been added to my movie list of things 'to get'

I have always loved this film...

Isn't Moira amazing...I wanted to be able to dance like her..

Here she is on her wedding day, just married to Ludovic Kennedy. (He's very handsome)

She could leap about with ease!

I love candid photos..

Here is another on her wedding day...she looks a bit nervous...I know how that feels!

When we moved here to Devizes, 5 minutes up the road is a village called Avebury, where a ring of standing stones surrounds a village.. its that close that I could cycle to it. When I first went there I fell in love with it..and I couldn't believe it when I found out today that Moira lived there during her retirement with her husband, in one of the cottages on the high street...(Its the main road through the little village) I couldn't believe she lived so close to where I live now.

Sadly Moira passed away a few years ago...but she will always be Vicky from the Red Shoes to me.
If you have never watched this film, I simply urge you to watch it....

You won't be disappointed.

It's a lovely film. It wasn't till long after I'd seen it that I discovered she was married to Ludovic Kennedy.
