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.

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)

At the tribunal

"You know that, after the war, we had very bad years in germany.
We got poorer and poorer. Every day retired officers or
schoolteachers were caught shoplifting. Money lost its value,
the price of everything rose ... except of human beings.
We read in the newspapers that the after-war years were bad
everywhere, that crime was increasing and that honest citizens
were having a hard job to put the gangsters in jail.
Well in Germany, the gangsters finally succeeded
in putting the honest citizens in jail."
