The Archer brand of idealism was out of step with British filmmaking trends that favored the literary tradition and documentary approaches. For a time ignored, Powell eventually became the grand old man of the English cinema, praised by Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.
Salwolke focuses on Powell since so much less is known about Pressburger. But he emphasizes that Powell's greatest achievements in film were the fruits of their collaboration. The Films of Michael Powell and the Archers offers insight into an important part of the development of cinema and ensures that these filmmakers are features rather than footnotes of history. Includes a bibliography and a filmography.
