The red headed beauty Moira Shearer in the classic movie
The Red Shoes (1948) ♥️
Aside from being a fairytale about a pair of enchanted shoes, it is a metaphor for the way Victoria becomes utterly possessed by her single-minded pursuit of art.

“Ice cream! Chocolate! All freeee today! Come along, children!” The Child Catcher, from the classic 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is second only to Margaret Hamilton’s Wicked Witch as my all-time favorite villain.

[Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. 1968.]
Based on the onomatopoeic titled book written by Ian Fleming for his son Caspar. Yes, the same man who authored the Bond series also wrote one hit children's book, published in 1964.
•
I loved watching growing up, but have to admit to still being utterly terrified of the Child Catcher, played by the brilliant Australian dancer Robert Helpmann. 
And if anyone was going to have a step-mother, in a complete antithesis of the evil stereotype, Truly Scrumptious really does live up to her delectable name. 
In her famous stint to help rescue the children, she sings my favourite song of the film:
"What do you see
You people gazing at me
You see a doll on a music box
That's wound by a key
How can you tell
I'm under a spell
I'm waiting for love's first kiss
You cannot see
How much I long to be free
Turning around on this music box
That's wound by a key
Yearning
Yearning
While
I'm turning around and around..."
Pure magic!

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is the greatest musical ever made. Fight me. In all seriousness though it stands as a nostalgic beacon of my childhood in a genre that I just never took to, save for a few others in the same boat (The Sound Of Music is class, but that's a another story). I grew up with Chitty, watched it from a very young age when I was still impressionable, and since then I've probably seen the thing over a hundred times as the years passed, with new eyes each time I revisited it at a later age. It's a miraculous marvel of visual storytelling, a film that truly employs the sentiment "they don't make em' like they used to." They really don't though, films with this much hands-on imagination, passion for storytelling and ear for music just aren't a common thing in our newfound age of computer dominated franchise giants. This is a film that is fuelled by wonder and whimsy, a monumental undertaking when you consider it's length and scope, a pure oasis of childlike escapism, and a thoroughbred bona fide classic. Based on a short, slight storybook by Ian "James Bond 007" Fleming, this is one of the extremely rare occurrences in which a film adaptation surpasses it's literary source material in every way. How does it achieve this you ask? Two words: Roald Dahl. Dahl, a beloved novelist himself, concocted a scrumdiddlyumptious screenplay that let what was conserved and clipped in the book run positively wild for the film, not to mention dreamed up some achingly beautiful, endlessly catchy songs that have since become timeless. The titular machine is a souped up jalopy that has a few gizmos under it's hood including the ability to fly and float on water, lovingly built up by master inventor and father of the year for the next ten centuries, Characticus Potts, played by Dick Van Dyke in the performance I'll always remember him for. After a sincerely charming opening act set in rural England, it's off to fairytale land as he, his two darling children Jeremy and Jemima (Heather Ridley and Adrian Hall) and lovely Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes) embark on a dazzling adventure to Germanic country 'Vulgaria' to rescue eccentric Grandpa Potts (Lionel Jeffries) and

Vivien and The Old Vic World Tour (1961-1962): Australia - Part 5
by @szilviaperes 
The positive feedback about Vivien’s performance continued: “As Viola Vivien Leigh gave a faithful performance... Vivien Leigh as Viola is slim and gamin-like in her hose and doublet.” Vivien arrived at Sydney on September 26. She stayed at the Fernleigh Castle. “Trudie and I and Bobby and Jack Merivale are all happily settled in this lovely quiet hotel overlooking the harbour. It is most peaceful and pleasant.” The opening night was on September 28 at the Theatre Royal. They played there until December 9.

In October the British Council feedback a little bit changed. “The Old Vic are at present in a very worried state. We could have advised them on their choices of play and would certainly have cracked down on two of them: they realise now that their choice was bad. They have assumed that Vivien Leigh would be the draw she was when she first came out, but this has not happened: they have seen Vivien Leigh already and they saw her with Olivier. The current male lead is nothing very special, and their publicity angle of keeping Miss Leigh in the public eye out of the theatre, is not bringing people into the theatre.

"There are children here. I can smell them..." ~ The Child Catcher, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
Who remembers this chilling character? As a child, to me The Child Catcher scene was one of the scariest that I had ever seen. Robert Helpmann's portrayal and facial features were so convincing that I literally covered my eyes upon seeing him for the first time. More sinister to me was the ambiguity of his voice and mannerisms, I just didn't know what to make of him or her...
Helpmann was nearly killed during the production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when the carriage that he was driving spun out of control and turned over. Thanks to his dancer reflexes, he was able to leap off of the moving vehicle and land safely on his feet.
Thanks to @pattyhaswag for her recent Chitty post that reminded me of this Top Hatted villain 🎩

She was with John Merivale and the rumour was published again: they would be marrying during the tour in Australia. Then she traveled to Melbourne, where she stayed at the Hotel Windsor.

A couple of days later the Australian Women’s Weekly had announced all of the “big three” of the Old Vic Company had arrived and the Australian tour started on July 12 in Melbourne. The “big three” were actress Vivien Leigh, who would be in Australia for about twelve months, Canadian actor John Merivale, who was Vivien’s companion, and Robert Helpmann, the tour director.

In Australia the Old Vic presented three plays: “The Lady of the Camellias”, had adapted by Andrew Allan from the Dumas classic; Christopher Fry’s adaptation of “Duel of Angels,” by Giraudoux; and Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.” Leading the company, Vivien played Marguerite in “The Lady of the Camellias”, the tempestuous Paola in “Duel”, and Viola in “Twelfth Night”. For “The Lady of the Camellias”, dresses and decor had been done by Carl Toms, who decorated the Kensington Palace for Princess Margaret and Mr. Antony Armstrong-Jones.

La sua storia d'amore con la danza ha inizio a soli 10 anni, quando incantò con la grazia dei suoi movimenti tutta l'Inghilterra. Ninette de Valois, nata in Irlanda, divenne presto una ballerina e si unì ai Balletti Russi di Serge Diaghilev.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)

Huggo / edited by statmanjeff
In England, circa 1910, eccentric Caractacus Potts works as an inventor, a job which barely supports himself, his even more eccentric father, and his two children, Jeremy and Jemima; but, they're all happy. When the children beg their father to buy for them their favorite plaything - a broken down jalopy of a car sitting at a local junkyard - Caractacus does whatever he can to make some money to buy it. One scheme to raise money involves the unexpected assistance of a pretty and wealthy young woman they have just met named Truly Scrumptious, the daughter of a candy factory owner, but Caractacus eventually comes into another one-time-only windfall of money, enough to buy the car. Applying his inventing skills, Caractacus transforms the piece of junk into a beautiful working machine, which they name Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from the noise its engine makes. At a seaside picnic with his children and Truly, Caractacus spins a fanciful tale of an eccentric inventor, his pretty girlfriend, his two children, and a magical car named Chitty, all involved in the faraway land of Vulgaria. The child-like ruler Baron Bomburst, ruler of Vulgaria, will do whatever he can to get his hands on their magical car; but, because of Baroness Bomburst's dislike of children, youngsters are outlawed, even the unsuspecting offspring of foreign inventors of magical cars.

Yesterday was Robert Helpmann's 108th birthday Anniversary. Helpmann was a dancer, actor, theatre director and a dear friend to Vivien. He directed her in many plays being some of them 'Lady of the Camelias' and 'Twelve Night' from the Old Vic World Tour (1961/2). Here's an early photo of Vivien with Robert (pictured next to her) and Ninette de Valois at the Vic-Wells Costume Ball, 1938 #vivienleigh #roberthelpmann #theoldvic #theatre #shakespeare #oldhollywood #1930s
