The life and death of Colonel Blimp by Michael Powell( Visual )

82 editions published between 1942 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on cartoonist David Low's parody of the old-fashioned British professional soldier, set in his ways and unable to adapt to the brutality of modern war. This story follows the career of Clive Candy, at first an idealistic, young Boer War hero, then a brigadier general, serving honorably in World War I. Finally, by World War II, he has become a bald, overweight, querulous old man, angry that his age and military experience are held in contempt, and bewildered that his lifelong code of gentlemanly conduct has become an anachronism in a world threatened by a monster like Hitler

42 editions published between 1937 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragic story that led to the evacuation of an island of outer Scotland is recalled in a bitter homecoming by a character in this drama which was filmed on location on the island of Foula in the Shetlands. An actual evacuation of the island of St. Kilda in the Hebrides provided the basis for Powell's romantic response to the theme of civilisation pitted against nature, mixing professional actors with the people of Foula. This was Powell's first 'real' film, the graphic imagery recalling Flaherty's" Man of Aran" and foreshadowing Powell's own "I know Where I'm Going". Also included on the tape is a film about Powell's return to Foula in 1978 with members of the original cast and crew

Powell & Pressburger : a cinema of magic spaces by Andrew Moor( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The filmmaking partnership of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger was one of the most remarkable and visionary in cinema. They made an extraordinary range of films, from The Spy in Black and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp to A Canterbury Tale and The Red Shoes. With champions like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, and revived critical interest worldwide, they now find new generations of admirers. This illuminating new book looks closely at these classic films to explore their complex relationship to national identity, and their developing interest in exile, borderlands, utopias, escapism, art and fantasy. Moor reveals how the visual imagery of the films of World War II question current cinematic styles and how post-war films like The Red Shoes and The Tales of Hoffman - in their highly expressive use of design, music and dance - are international in character
