I was fortunate to see her early in her career as Cinderella. Due to Fonteyn's illness, she got first chance at the role and I preferred her to Fonteyn, although those two august critics, Beaumont and Denby, even when reporting on Shearer's performance, lamented not seeing Fonteyn-----I guess not even Denby is perfect.
Rest in peace, lovely Moira.

Thank you for that recollection, atm711. I imagine her footwork in Act I was delicious.

That she wouldnt have done dancing only at Covent Garden.
Those myriads of little girls who wanted to take up ballet after seeing the film; there must have been a great ballerina or two emanating from that - and all those others, who did not become ballerinas, but all the same enjoyed learning ballet and finding great benefit from ballet tuition.
Here sits one of those who had to quit at a too early age, but now enjoys ballet in other forms, namely studying dance history. I think I can thank Moira Shearer for sitting here in front of my computer. She inspired me. And I thank her for that!

Mr. Kennedy’s fights against injustice began with the case of Derek Bentley, who was hanged in 1953 for the murder of a constable during a burglary. The constable was shot by Mr. Bentley’s accomplice, but three officers testified that Mr. Bentley had shouted, “Let him have it, Chris!” The shooter, a minor, drew a jail term, but Mr. Bentley was hanged.
