The Powell & Pressburger Images

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 images 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.

Powell & Pressburger Images
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)

Location hunting

1. Arriving at "The Bull". Note the London Transport bus stop

2. Turning in. A few unusual buildings there

3. Parking up. The trees get in the way of a clear view

4. The sign for "The Bull" and the house across the road

5. That's one of the best shots of "The Bull" itself
Now, compare those with ...
The Bull Hotel in Gerrards Cross, SL9 7PA
Thanks to Alan F. for finding it
Compare the tall windows in the block to the right of the main building with those in #3 above.
Compare the railings on the balcony on that same block with those seen in #5 above
I'll try to get some pictures of my own as soon as I can get there

We were also looking for the ford that the despatch riders spalshed through
Compare that to ...

Thanks to Alan again for the photo
It's Bury Lane, Rickmansworth, WD3
Not quite as obvious this one, it's changed a lot since 1943
There's another one from about 1955 (although they incorrectly call it Bury Road)
