The film is based on the biography of the legendary Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova.

She made a successful world tour together with Viktor d'Andre, who was her husband and manager. Written by
Originally conceive and filmed as a 5-hour miniseries, Paramount ultimately decided that they wanted a two hour film. Thelma Schoonmaker (famed editor and wife of Michael Powell) managed to salvage a 160 minute theatrical version. Paramount, however, ultimately cut the film down further to its 133 minute state. After a terrible post-production session, including a poor dubbing and syncing of the English version, the compromised version was released with the Loteanu credit. Producer Frixos Constantine called it "artistically a disaster". See more »
This film , it can be said , is dedicated to artists all round the world. I saw this film in Russian language as I did not have the benefit of English sub-titles but in spite of that I fell in love with the film!!All the dancers who ever feel low can see this film and gain their confidence back.The movie shows that no matter whether she was tired or in pain , Anna Pavlova always danced and never disappointed her audiences. Her dedication to dance was unparalleled and those who want to take up dance as their career must start out only after watching this film.The music was haunting too. I wish Anna Pavlova was really the heroine of this film.
