Gone to Earth and The Devil's Chair

From a new series of drawings based on Powell/Pressburger's 1950's movie of Shropshire author Mary Webb's novel, particularly the sequence where Jennifer Jones casts her spell on the Devil's Chair. Gone to Earth was filmed in and around the Stiperstones and many of the places where I grew up; so strange to see such familiar landscapes in that 1950's technicolour.
