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]

So who is Steve Crook?

Who is Steve? Well I am just an admirer of the works of Powell & Pressburger like yourselves. I got volunteered into starting this email group and although officially I'm in charge in fact it's really the people in the group who run it.

I have quite a large collection of their films, as well as documentaries & books by and about them. The lists give details of what's available and where you might be able to find them.

I have been to quite a few P&P related screenings and events around the country. I live in South London, England - near Wimbledon where they play a bit of tennis sometimes. I work as a computer system designer/programmer at Brainstorm (I've got to pay for my P&P hobby somehow) and the office is on the Seven Sisters Road, London. Could I be the Seven Sisters soldier from ACT? :)
[We moved office and are now in Kentish Town]

Over the last few years have met a few people such as :-

I am also in (ir)regular email and/or telephone contact with :-

And many other "friends and admirers of P&P" around the world.

On a more personal note, I was born on 11th April 1954 (thereby avoiding having to update this to reflect my increasing age each year) and live with a varying number of feline friends in Morden, South West London. Currently there is just one, Poppy who was born in May 2011.

Steve + Bird Other interests, apart from P&P are quite varied and include falconry, literature, history, boats, architecture, theatre and just about anything. Oh I'm very eclectic me :)

And if you're wondering about that monogram up in the top right hand corner of the screen?
It's my initials (Stephen J. S. Crook), isn't it clever?
