We have been notified of the death of Elizabeth Christie, last survivor of the 1947 Powell-Pressburger ballet film, The Red Shoes.
She also appeared in their other hit, Tales of Hoffman.
A Londoner, Elizabeth was recruited by Ninette de Valois into the Sadlers Wells Company, which she hated, saying it was like the army.
She had a much happier time on the film set and with the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo.
UPDATE: We are informed that Paula Dunning, another cast member, is alive and well in Montreal, aged 92.
