‘The life and death of colonel Blimp’ traces, in flashback, the intertwined lives of a dashing young officer and his German counterpart from their first encounter, fighting a duel in Berlin in 1902, to a double defeat – the gallant British officer becomes a crusty old Blimp, and his gallant German counterpart arrives in England as a pathetic refugee from Nazi Germany. The plot is juxtaposed to that of the British officer’s thrice lost love – which introduces a disturbing undercurrent of romantic pessimism into what might otherwise seem a nostalgic chronicle. This volume also contains documentary material relevant to Powell and Pressburger’s struggle to get the film made in war-torn Britain.
