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.

Directed by Michael Powell,
from the book, "Mops" by Oliver Sandys.

Simple story of a humble girl's rise to stage fame. It is all very naive and the continuity is rather ragged owing to an excess of varied detail which makes for lack of cohesion.

Renee Ray as the variety artiste who becomes famous shows talent. The supporting cast is adequate.

Servants' hall humour, music and songs are included.
