BIOGRAPHY

Delicately pretty red-haired ballerina who made a stunning film debut in the classic dance drama, "The Red Sh s" (1948) by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Shearer appeared in a number of roles (not all of which involved dancing) through the 1950s, notably in Powell and Pressburger's beautifully baroque "Tales of Hoffman" (1951); the intriguing "The Man Who Loved Redheads" (1954), in which she played four roles; and Powell's unsettling landmark solo effort, "Peeping Tom" (1960). She retired in the early 1960s following her marriage to writer Ludovic Kennedy but returned to the London stage with a 1974 appearance in "Man and Wife."
