The film The Red Shoes, made in 1948, is not only loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale of the same name, but it was also inspired by an event in the life of British ballerina Diana Gould.  The film stars another famous British ballet dancer, Moira Shearer, and Anton Holbrook and Marius Goring.
