They look like your grandparents, or maybe their friends, but they’re not.
Check out Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger in this Cornel Lucas portrait, a British film photographer, born in 1920. It is not dated, but this particular print is from 1985. I had rarely seen a photo of them together that I found brilliant, until I came across this one:
Their partnership “The Archers” dates back from 1943 and it ended in 1957. Their most brilliant cooperations are The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943), A Matter of Life and Death (1946), Black Narcissus (1947) and The Red Shoes (1948). I particularly like The Tales of Hoffmann (1951).
