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]

Colonel Blimp

Park Lane, Upper Grosvenor Street.

We see the trucks going passed this point just after Spud says "I know a couple of shortcuts after Marble Arch". They have of course already gone past Marble Arch and turned left at this point to Grosvenor Square.

"Blast that taxi!"

Looking towards Piccadilly Circus. We see this later on just after "Break it up chaps" as the car turns right.
