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]

[As they pass Wickhambreaux Mill in the horse-drawn cart]

Bob: Great piece of weatherboarding, those watermills. I must ask the old gentleman who built it. I'll bet it was a Horton.

Alison: How did you manage to get round Mr Horton in that way?

Bob: We speak the same language.

Alison: I'm English! I don't speak their language!

Bob: He knows about wood, see, and so do I.

Alison: So that's it.
