Here's another Shearer film. Have you heard of the ca-1960 Hollywood film 'Black Tights'? It features four different one-act ballets by Roland Petit/Les Ballets de Paris. Among these is 'Cyrano de Bergerac' starring Moira Shearer as Roxane. The other ballets in the film include 'Carmen' (Zizi Jeanmaire), 'The Diamond Cruncher (again, Zizi), and 'A Merry Mourning' (Hollywood actress/dancer Cyd Charisse on pointe). Roland Petit is the male star, as well as choreographer, of all four ballets. Choreographer's privilege, I suppose.

James, prepare to be weirded out by "Peeping Tom." Moira does a spirited little unclassical dance, and then she gets offed, very early on in the movie. I can't remember if he hits her on the head, or if she's the one who gets throttled with the tripod.....
I purchased "Tales of Hoffmann" from moviesunlimited.com. Couldn't find it on Amazon at the time.
