The Masters  
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
The Red Shoes (1948)

Because The Red Shoes is one of the most popular of the P&P films, there are many images available.
I have put some of them into sub-directories.

Was this portrait of Dyagilev (left)
an inspiration for Lermontov?
Especially the red jacket he
wears when he smashes the mirror.

and smiling at Willi Forst.

Moira with J. Arthur Rank at the World première

Note: This was at the Gaumont Cinema, Haymarket. Without the fanfares normally associated with a big première of a Rank film at the Odeon, Leicester Square.
It's nice that J. Arthur did attend, after having threatened to not provide the completion funding and having walked out of the preview without saying a word to Emeric.
