By bernie VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
A young lady (Windy Hiller) pretty much knows what she wants in life. On her way to her wedding on a remote Scottish island she is delayed long enough to experience a different way of life and a reality that she was never exposed to. Here she finds different values and the difference between real nobility and the early version of plastic money. She is overwhelmed by her new discovery and the man (Roger Livesey) who introduced her to it. Now she must desperately escape or be lost forever in this different world.

I like to keep screenplays to some of the best movies as The BFI series or screen play series is a must for any serious videophile. These books separate the video into its basic constituencies and allow one to understand what the subliminal shots are supposed to portray.

I find myself coming back and back and back to this book probably more than the movie its self as this is one of the best of the Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger cinematic classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent little book 7 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I had just seen the film which absolutely amazed me. The book is an excellent guide to the background of the film. The writer's, director, lighting, sound and camera, it's all crammed in there. I would give a word of warning to those who prefer to keep the magic of the film a mystery. And that is that ALL the secrets are revealed in this book and you may not see the film in the same way after reading it
