Colonel Blimp in Knightsbridge



Colonel Blimp in Knightsbridge

Home to Clive Candy in the Powell & Pressburger classic

Location: 15 Ovington Square, Knightsbridge, SW3 1LH

Description: 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp' is a 1943 film by the British film making team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger under the production banner of The Archers.

It stars Roger Livesey, Deborah Kerr and Anton Walbrook. The title derives from the satirical Colonel Blimp comic strip by David Low but the story itself is original. The film is renowned for its Technicolor cinematography.

Portrays in warm-hearted detail the life and loves of one extraordinary man. We meet the imposingly rotund General Clive Wynne-Candy, a blustering old duffer who seems the epitome of stuffy, outmoded values.

Traveling backwards 40 years we see a different man altogether: the young and dashing officer 'Sugar' Candy. Through a series of relationships with three women and his lifelong friendship with a German officer, we see Candy's life unfold and come to understand how difficult it is for him to adapt his sense of military honor to modern notions of 'total war.'

And so to this location...this was portrayed as the home of Clive Candy (Robert Livesay), alas it was destroyed in this classic Powell & Pressburger clasic.
