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.

[Any comments are by me (Steve Crook) and other members of the email list]

IKWIG on the Radio

We have discovered that as well as AMOLAD on the radio, American radio also did an adaptation of IKWIG.

This one was a part of the NBC series "Theater Guild on the Air" aka the "US Steel Hour", sponsored by US Steel. It was broadcast on 15 October 1950 and starred David Niven & Geraldine Fitzgerald. Powell & Pressburger are credited as the authors (adapted by by Philip Lewis), and the introductory remarks indicate it is based on the film.

So that's another radio broadcast to try and find a recording of.

Thanks to Thomas Stern for the additional research (and the librarian Thomas used)
