I imagine there are a number of people who grew up on 'The Boyfriend' and 'The Music Lovers' who were charmed by Gable years before we knew he'd been a Royal Ballet star. In fact, I didn't know it till I read his obituary, as I wasn't keeping up with ballet outside of New York during the 80s and 90s. He was more of a natural in the movies than most dancers, I'd say, and that Wedding Party scene with Glenda Jackson in 'The Rainbow' is for me the high point of what I was able to see.
Had no idea about the dancing with Nureyev or 'Images of Love'. Beautiful stuff, and I'm looking forward to all of it.
Edited to add: I see that almost all of the great ballet dancing was before he started making those Ken Russell movies, and some of those are already 40 years old.

Nostalgia flooded my emotions and even a tear or two rolled down my cheek as the photographs revived a period that was the most carefree and possibly the happiest period of my life.
Christopher Gable was an extraordinary sensitive performer whose emotional expression was always quite perfect when in dramatic, humorous or romantic mode.
I cannot talk about this artist without Lynn Seymour coming immediately to ones mind. Perfection in a partnership would sum up the inter-creative combination they achieved. Irreplaceable might be thought to be going too far. Not for me.
I was a teenager when they appeared in The Two Pigeons and they joined the ranks of my teenage idols. Together, they created a highly charged emotional response from London audiences of all ages and critics as well.Sir Frederick Ashton's magical and meticulous touch was also highly celebrated.
In Romeo and Juliet, the audience was swept along by their tidal wave of emotions creating moments when sitting on the “edge of ones seat“ became a reality.
Most of Keith Money’s photographs catch a certain theatrical mood and those with Svetlana Beriosova reveal the unique beauty of her line.
