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.

His Lordship
Picturegoer Weekly: December 3rd 1932

Jerry Verno, that clever and versatile British comedian, is very badly served with material in this queer mixture of musical comedy, burlesque and satire, which is too indefinite and poorly constructed to entertain to any extent.

The story has possibilities which have not been fully exploited. Continuity is ragged, and there is little to recommend it to discriminating patrons.
