One comment on “Staging the landscapes of war – with noises off

  1. Thanks for this fascinating material. Powell and Pressburger’s A Canterbury Tale [1944] includes an extraordinary scene of the transformation described by Boyd (and Lewin): a few minutes into the movie, a falcon loosed by mediaeval pilgrims transforms into a Spitfire mid-air [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXQqzeiTYDo#t=191]. Of course, this all takes place on the “home front,” a tension fully exploited by the insane psycho-sexual dynamics of the movie’s plot.
