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.

A murder drama in which a murderer is brought to justice by the knowledge of an unpublished tune. Campbell Gullan as the murderer is good. Gerald Fielding as the journalist plays the part with confidence, and Marjorie Corbett as the daughter of the murderer gives an attractive performance. Entertaining.
