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.

TV Guide review

The Elusive Pimpernel (1950)
aka The Fighting Pimpernel

Lackluster telling of the story of the English aristocrat who assumes a number of disguises to rescue nobles from the French Revolution's guillotine. Niven tries hard in the title role but is overwhelmed by the leisurely pacing and Technicolor effects. (Remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel.)
