Product description


I'm tremendously impressed by your book on Michael Powell. Well written, very interesting, not dry and tedious. Excellent work.--Thomas Gifford, author of "The Assassini" and "The Wind Factor"

...reliable study along currently orthodox lines, with sagacious observations and some nicely disconcerting insights...--Cineaste

Salwolke writes with style and grace. Salwolke's bibliography of material on individual films is invaluable. His filmography is extensive, accurate and well worth having. Anyone interested in British cinema, particularly thinking of researching the subject, should be aware of this excellent book.--Historical Journal of Film, Radio, & Television

A conscientious, well-documented account of Powell's work.--Sight and Sound

Describes and analyzes the work of Michael Powell and his partner, Emeric Pressburger, who released 16 films in 15 years, from the beginning of their partnership until its end in 1956.--Booknews

...well-reported...it's great to see Powell receiving his due, and this is a welcome addition to the literature of his very special talents.--American Cinematographer

A scholarly study of the legendary Red Shoes director and his writer Emeric Pressburger.--Howard Maxford Film Review


Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger successfully collaborated on 16 films over a period of 15 years, most often with their identities united as the Archers. To their credit are such classics as Black Narcissus, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, The Red Shoes, and The Tales of Hoffman.
