Allan Arkush on


Released 1968
Distributor Universal Pictures

Karel Reisz’ epic biography of Isadora Duncan—an American dancer whose European exploits made her a political lightning rod—stars Vanessa Redgrave, no stranger to controversy herself. Told mostly in flashback as Duncan dictates her memoirs, the 1968 film co-stars James Fox and Jason Robards. Redgrave won just about every best actress award under the sun save for the Oscar.
