The Powell & Pressburger Images

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 images 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.


Powell & Pressburger Images - A Matter of Life and Death (1946)
The AMOLAD Press Book

Many films have Press Books that were created by the studio or production comany and sent out to the cinema managers, this was in the days before the big chains of cinemas when most cinemas were run as individual operations. Press books typically contain background information about the film, ready made copy for inserting into the local press, posters and other material available from the studio publicity department and maybe some suggestions as to how the film should be promoted. That last part often contains some quite ludicrous suggestions.

But the AMOLAD Press Book is one of the best I've ever seen. Not only in physical size and number of pages but also the quality of the information inside it. And I don't say that just because I love the film so much - although that is certainly a bonus.
