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.

What did they do in PnP films?

The Thief of Bagdad (1940)
John played Ahmed, the Prince. Friend to Abu, the thief (Sabu) and suitor to The Princess (June Duprez).

The Man Who Loved Redheads (1955)
Not a P&P film but starred a few of the Archers' regular actors.
John played Mark St. Neots, Lord Binfield who was continually chasing his ideal woman Sylvia. The young Sylvia and the women that were chased were all played by Moira Shearer.
