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.

Leo Marks (24 September 1920 - 15 January 2001)

Leo Marks at Wormelow I had the honour & pleasure of meeting Leo at the opening of the Violette Szabo museum in Wormelow, Herefordshire on 24th June 2000.

He was a charming man and we had a brief talk about his work with Michael Powell although as the day was meant for Violette I didn't detain him for too long. He had said he was glad to hear that there was this revival of interest in the films, especially Peeping Tom and he said he'd love to talk further about them at another date. Alas that was never to be.
