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

UK drama 1943 color 163 min.

Director: Emeric Pressburger and Michael Powell

Pompous, arrogant career soldier Clive Candy survives three wars and three romances in Emeric Pressburger and Michael Powell's pointed rebuke of the dying British military empire. Criterion presents the longer version of the film, with audio commentary by writer-director Michael Powell and Blimp aficionado Martin Scorsese, discussing the film's production and its long-term impact on moviemaking.
