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.

Hotel Splendide
Picturegoer Weekly: July 16th 1932

Jerry Verno is an efficient and funny comedian, and he gets away at times in this mixture of crook story and comedy which seems to fall between two stools.

What laughter there is is easily accounted for but the scenes that are supposed to be thrilling miss the mark. The action takes place in a small hotel which is adequately set.
