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.

Ballet opens; The Shoemaker

Enter the Girl

The Shoemaker waits for his prey

The Girl wants the red shoes

Dressed in her new red shoes the Girl leaves for the carnival

She dances the night away

But she soon grows weary

The Shoemaker captures the Girl. The red shoes never tire.

She dances through a wasteland

She dances with a newspaper

She meets horrific images

Later she sees what her life could have been like.
A dance with a dream lover.

The dream dance continues. Birds of fancy.

The Girl and the Shoemaker struggle.

She begs the Priest to take off the red shoes.

He does and she dies.
