MOIRA SHEARER by Pigeon Crowls


Email this review


The growing number of allet in this country will welcome this lavishly illustrated and beautifully made book. Presenting Miss Shearer's success story against a background of famous names in the field of ballet, the author gives brief resumes of plots of her various roles, and backstage glimpses of the Sadler's Wells Company. The personal story emerges rather insipidly, but will be balanced by the truly stunning photographs. The widespread popularity of the picture, The Red Shoes, has secured the star nationwide fame.
