Post about her birthday, then drop out of sight ... such was not the Siren's intention. She actually had a very nice birthday, involving a lavish dinner and a present of tickets to a Wagner opera for this week. I hope that fellow redhead Moira Shearer, another Jan. 17 baby, had as lovely a time. Part Two of my Luise Rainer disquisition is almost done but has turned out to be a lot more work than I had anticipated. I hope to have it posted this weekend. Meanwhile, this beautiful still prompts me to wonder about all the many ballerinas who claim The Red Shoes sparked their desire to dance. Considering the movie's tragic ending, isn't that just a wee bit odd?
