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.

What did they do in PnP films?

The Lion Has Wings (1939)

The Thief of Bagdad (1940)

And of course it was Alexander Korda who brought Powll and Pressburger together to make The Spy in Black.

Korda's London Films production company also backed P&P (together or individually) to make :-

And probably others. Korda didn't always have a lot of money to pay P&P but he always supported them as much as he could.
