I should say firstly that my interest in this film is more than a passing one. I was in it! OK, not a featured player, I was the young drummer in the orchestra during the boxing-match sequence. This was filmed in the Blackpool Tower Circus in 1976 and, although not a lengthy scene, took 10 days to film. Often for as much as 10 hours per day. Arriving early on the set we were treated to the sight of Nureyev 'limbering-up' with his ballet exercises. Spontaneous applause greeted his impromptu performance. After the passing of 35 years (!) this is still a good film to watch with dazzling visuals and handsome locations. OK, so Rudolph N's thick Russian accent falls short of being authentic, he gives a very workmanlike performance in a film which has been sadly neglected. Sound and picture quality are superb too.
