Powell with Son, Columba, on the set of 'The Battle of the River Plate" (1956)
Michael Powell with son, Columba, on the set of The Battle of the River Plate (1956)

The great innovators have always been fearless . . . I have fallen off haystacks, out of trees, over cliffs. I have been nearly drowned, shot and hanged. I have been in countless car crashes without getting a scratch. I have been alone in an office with Louis B. Mayer.
