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]

Trivia about Leslie Banks

While fighting during WWI, Banks' face was scarred and partially paralysed. When he returned to the theatre and subsequently in films, he could use this to his advantage by mainly showing the unaffected side of his face for the nice guys and the scarred & partially paralysed side when playing villains.
