Summary/Abstract: Peter Ouvaliev (12.01.1915–11.12.1998) is one of the brightest intellectual figures in 20th century Bulgaria. During his political exile in London (1947–1989) he becomes an organic part of European culture. This was possible due to his family background, his high profile education and his own cultural interests. Before his departure from Bulgaria, he left behind important written legacy including theatre plays, radio reports, song lyrics, theatre and film criticism among others. His early film reviews were published on the pages of diverse periodicals in the period 1936–1947. In 2001 they were gathered together in a book called “Filmovi trohi” (Film crumbs) by Bulgarian film historian and researcher Kostadin Kostov. This article will once again observe and analyze these early works of Peter Ouvaliev almost 100 years after their creation.
