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.

I Know Where I'm Going

From: Reynold's Weekly
18 November 1945

I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING (Odeon), directed by Powell and Pressburger, has much to commend it, a certain freshness, bright dialogue, lovely scenery, clever effects, good acting.

     That it does not rivet the attention more firmly is the fault of the too slight story, that of a girl, Wendy Hiller, who, journeying to a small Hebridean island to marry a wealthy magnate, becomes stormbound, nearly drowned, and finally jilts her magnate for the Scottish Laird (Roger Livesey).

     Novelties include a clever way of introducing the heroine and the credits at the same time, a remarkable storm scene, highland revels, and Mr. Ramshaw, a magnificent golden eagle.
