Product Description

Product Description

Triple bill of classic film dramas. 'A Night to Remember' (1958) is based on Walter Lord's book about the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. Made in a semi-documentary style, this film offers an honest account of the terrible disaster, and features cameos by stars including Kenneth More, Honor Blackman and David McCallum. In 'The Red Shoes' (1948), ballet impresario Boris Lermontov (Anton Walbrook) hires up-and-coming ballerina Victoria Page (Moira Shearer) and talented young composer Julian Craster (Marius Goring) to work with him on a new ballet, an adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story 'The Red Shoes'. The show is a great success and Victoria and Julian fall in love. But Boris is jealous and makes moves to spoil their happiness. In 'Caesar and Cleopatra' (1945), Vivien Leigh and Claude Rains star in a lavish technicolour production based on George Bernard Shaw's play about the Queen of the Nile's love affair with Roman emperor Julius Caesar.

Here's an attractive threesome of well-regarded British movies. A Night to Remember from 1958, about the sinking of the Titanic, has a semi-documentary feel to it and whilst not as spectacular as the James Cameron movie it's more accurate and thankfully devoid of novelettish elements. Even so, when the great ship goes under it's still a pretty awesome moment and always brings a lump to my throat. (I'm old enough to remember watching a TV chat show in the 60s which featured one of the survivors, by then an old lady, whose porcelain pet pig was thrown into the lifeboat forcing the frightened young woman to follow, so saving her life, an incident included in this movie.) The Red Shoes is still the best movie made about the world of ballet (of which admittedly there ain't exactly a whole lot) and makes one regret that the late Moira Shearer made so few movies. Caesar and Cleopatra, based on Bernard Shaw's play, was made under difficult conditions in the final days of WW2 as Hitler's flying bombs were dropping around the studio, and was the most expensive British film production up till that time. The colour, sets and costumes are magnificent and there's a fine cast of British thespians with Vivien Leigh a fabulous-looking Siren of the Nile (knocking spots of Liz Taylor's dumpy, scratchy-voiced Cleo.) But the tone of the movie wobbles uncertainly between light and heavy, there's an excess of Shavian clever-chat and an epic sweep that might have justified the lavish production values is never quite achieved (I suspect, incidentally, that Senna the soothayer in Frankie Howerd's Up Pompeii got her "Woe! Woe! And thrice woe!" from this movie.) An impressive failure, then, but not devoid of interest or visual splendours.Read more ›

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER 1958. Justly celebrated movie. TITANIC was not bad but we have here a more dramatic film. The Second Officer is very well played by KENNETH MORE, more subtle than the stiff upper lip type that would have afflicted us in the thirties. Do you know that the nazis produced a film to show that the upper class passengers were decadent and cowards? The WALTER LORD book was thankfully short and the screenplay by ERIC AMBLER is quite good. We can see DAVID MC CALLUM and (briefly) SEAN CONNERY.
THE RED SHOES 1948. I don't enjoy the ballet and I'm not a systematic fan of POWELL/PRESSBURGER (except for A CANTERBURY TALE and BLACK NARCISSUS, of course), but we can only ask:how did he did it? A very thin plot and the ballet.It must be the miracle of great moviemaking AND the great director of photography JACK CARDIFF.
CAESAR AND CLEOPATRA 1945. I am a big fan of SHAW and was ready to savage that lavish production, but it's a triumph.

I love this film! It is the original film of the tragic story of the Titanic and the people on board who lost their lives after the ship hit an iceburg and the heroism of the captain and crew. I prefer this version to the remake with Leonardo de Caprio (although that was a good film). This film has so much charm and atmosphere that I defy you to dislike it!

As an oldie can remember going to the cinema to see these films and being enthralled. The passage of time has not diminished despite the great leaps in film technology.

Bought the compilation for the Red Shoes which brought back very happy memories. The other two films were an enjoyable bonus.

I bought this mainly for the Red Shoes which I saw as a child. I was enthralled then and feel exactly the same now! This is a masterpiece expecially the dancing!
