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]

The Medium
Kinematograph Weekly:

An elementary essay in the macabre, a picture so poorly acted, so disconcertingly vague in its story outline, and so absurdly artificial in its Parisian atmosphere, that thrills fail to visit it.

Richard Littledale...beyond his dramatic powers, Shayle Gardner...never sure of his accent...Nancy O'Neil...lacks experience. There is little chance of the masses greeting it with enthusiasm. The retrospective treatment is artificial, and the camera work is lacking in imagination.
