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.

Sheet Music from the films

At the time many of the P&P films were released, it was common to publish sheet music to let people go home and play the tunes and sing the songs that they had enjoyed so much in the films. This was a simpler time. TVs were rare, pianos were common in many homes.

See also the list of music from the films available on CD, LP or whatever.
