'Powell and Pressburger made beautiful, deviant and mongrel films that are famously un-pindownable. Moor's book challenges this belief in their rootlessness and shows how they fit into the movie genres, social history, empire, gender, nation, literature and iconography. He's particularly good on the postwar films, and brilliant on David Niven.' Mark Cousins 'Andrew Moor does full justice to the richness of their great films of the 1940s, and relates them in fascinating ways to the events of this pivotal decade in twentieth-century British history.' Charles Barr 'Essential reading for anyone engaging with the work of Powell and Pressburger.' Screen 'Eclectic and intellectually stimulating. - This book is clearly a labour of love, but that only adds to its worth and readability.' Historical Journal of Film and Television ' - A valuable text for both students and academics that is pertinent for study relating to postmodernism, cultural geography, postcolonial studies, gender studies, film studies, and the affect/effect of cinematic spaces on the spectator.' Journal of Popular Film and Television
