The Masters  
The Powell & Pressburger Pages

Dedicated to the work of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and all the other people, both actors and technicians who helped them make those wonderful films.

A lot of the documents have been sent to me or have come from other web sites. The name of the web site is given where known. If I have unintentionally included an image or document that is copyrighted or that I shouldn't have done then please email me and I'll remove it.

I make no money from this site, it's purely for the love of the films.

[Any comments are by me (Steve Crook) and other members of the email list]

What did they do in PnP films?

The Red Shoes (1948)

The Tales of Hoffmann (1951)
Sir Thomas appears at the end as the conductor of the last few bars. It was also Sir Thomas who first suggested making a film of ToH to P&P. He then auditioned all the singers and conducted the orchestra for the pre-recorded score.

Luna de miel (1959)
