Plaque: Powell and Pressburger

Erection date: 17/2/2014


Michael Powell, 1905 - 1990, Emeric Pressburger, 1902 - 1988, film-makers, worked here in Flat 120.
English Heritage

Plaque unveiled by film director Martin Scorsese, Thelma Schoonmaker, film editor and Michael Powell's widow, his son Columba Powell and Archie Macdonald, Pressburger's great grandson.

From the EH page: "Powell and Pressburger and their production company - The Archers - operated out of the Dorset House flat from 1942 to 1947. The décor of the office was in keeping with the war and post-war years of austerity - there were camp beds in case of air-raid warnings and Powell remembered that they never bothered to furnish the flat properly or to hang pictures and posters."
