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.

A Plaque for Emeric
16-23 September 2007

Gabriella Varga reported:
I have good news for you from Miskolc, Emeric's native city. We would like to place a plaque on the house he was born (3,Szentpéteri Kapu) during a film festival for young filmmakers in September. Also the organisers are thinking of giving out a special prize emblemed with his name and to invite his relatives to the festival.

Emeric's parent's house is at Szentpéteri Kapu 3. (3 Gate of Saint Peter's). Miskolc has 4 'Gates' that are the four main streets leading out from the city. This particular one goes to the North and leads to Sajószentpéter.

Here are a few photos that Gabi took of the house:

The plaque was erected in November 2007 by the City of Miskolc and CineFest - Miskolc International Film Festival
