The Red Danube on TCM

4 posts in this topic

I found a little more information about this film on the TCM site:

Go to the bottom of the page and click the down arrow to 2:45 am - it will scroll down to more info about The Red Danube. It seems the film is mainly interested in post-war Europe in the late 40s as the Soviets took control of eastern Europe. It does mention that Janet Leigh took ballet lessons and does a few steps in pointe shoes. No mention of a body double.

I saw this film several years ago and I don't remember much dancing but a lot of propaganda... I thought Janet Leigh was unbelievably young and fresh-faced. So different from her later persona.
