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.

Innovation at Singapore Library

A while ago I was contacted by Jaki Fisher of the National Library Board of Singapore. She told me they were putting on an exhibition about dance in film and would like to make use of some of the stills I had. I've always been fond of librarians, I have made such use of their facilities & they've been so helpful to me in the past, so how could I refuse?

Jaki had a look through all the stills I have scanned onto the web site & I told her about a few more. She told me that she wanted it for a big display panel so a scan wouldn't have enough resolution to stand being enlarged as much as was needed. I offered a few but they eventually decided to use just the one We agreed I'd send the original over (at the library's expense), they'd get it photographed & suitably enlarged and then send it back. I had no problem with that - I always trust librarians :)

Jaki has since sent the still back & has also sent me some details about the exhibition. It is being held at the Library@Esplanade.

First, here are some stills of the library area which contains the exhibitions.

Dance Village #1

Dance Village #2

Film Village #1

Film Village #2

Theatre Village

The rest are PDF documents. With their zoom facility these allow you to get an overview of the exhibition panels and then to zoom in and scan across to see what is there in detail.
