Polished & Ready To Dance

June 8, 2009 It’s very fitting that after rehabilitating the reputation of the Michael Powell and EmericPressburger canon in the United States, filmmaker Martin Scorsese should also spearhead the restoration of what is arguably their greatest film, The Red Shoes. A ravishing new print provided by Cinetech of the 1948 ballet melodrama premiered at Cannes 2009 earlier this month, and will soon be screened in Los Angeles, with a UK Blu-ray release from ITV scheduled for late June.
