I saw this film when it was first released, many decades ago; so my memories are faded. But I do remember that the performances of Peck and Toumanova were electrifying.
The quality of the production was, I thought, excellent. As I was a teen-ager, the intimate scenes between Peck and Toumanova had less to say to me than they might have done. Yet now, sixty-odd years later, I still remember them as emotionally meaningful.
I remember thinking that wearing dark clothes while trying to manoeuvre in the snow was stupid, and not true-to-life. But the overall impression was of heroic resistance against overwhelming odds.
It was inspiring and uplifting. I glowed for days.
