Oh Rosalinda!

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger transfer the plot of Johann Strauss's opera Die Fledermaus to postwar Vienna for a 1955 musical filmed in Technicolor and 'Scope. Not one of their best movies (cf The Red Shoes and A Matter of Life and Death), but it's certainly an engaging mannerist oddity that calls to mind such contemporary cross-references in delirium as Frank Tashlin and Vincente Minnelli, and the cast—Anton Walbrook, Michael Redgrave, Anthony Quayle, Mel Ferrer, Dennis Price, and Ludmilla Tcherina—is occasionally as enterprising as the candy-box decor.
