Comment
Michael Powell was a noted director and producer in the 1940's and 1950's with Emeric Pressburger. His partner was the British actress Pamela Brown. He started his career making silent films then so called quta quickies in the the 1920's. He was introduced to Emeric Pressburger by Alexander Korda and their first collaboration was The Spy In Black. In films like The Red Shoes they merged dance and fantasy into the film rather than it being seen as an add in to the film. They were experimenting with what they could do with film including effects and sound.
