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.

Trips to Boston, Lincs (OOOAIM) - September 2009

Nick went exploring the locations used in One of Our Aircraft is Missing (1942) in October 2008 and then again in September 2009 when he added:
I think that I've found the location of the German garrison opposite the Bergomeister's house. Church House in Boston seems to meet all of the criteria. It's listed on Geograph as "By St. Botolph's church on Wormgate, described by Pevsner as "Boston's paramount example of Fen Artisan Mannerism", 17th century house that now serves as the Parish Office".

Here's the link to a photo of how it looks now.

Compare that with the screen grabs from the film:

The School House

Cornelius, running home

Music blares

Germans are shouting
