Michael Powell and British landscape

The latest online edition of the film magazine Screen has been posted on the British Film Institute website.

It includes an essay by Mark Duguid on the director Michael Powell and his "constant, almost spiritual fascination with British landscape". Powell was clearly a reader of the Shropshire Star:
Gone to Earth populated its raw Shropshire countryside with an almost fairytale cast of innocent young maidens, malevolent lusty squires and well-meaning but foolish vicars.
There are also articles about the rediscovered films of Mitchell & Kenyon, the late Sir John Mills and George Cole.
