TIGERTUBE : See you at Wembley, Frankie Walsh (part one)

Grab some popcorn and discover (or rediscover) the short film that got local director Mark Herman noticed (it won him a Student Academy Award) back in 1987. See you at Wembley Frankie Walsh follows the travails of City fan Malcolm, who foolishly planned his wedding to the lovely Carol on FA Cup semi final day, and with City somewhat improbably getting into the last four (rather than playing Reading away) he has a conflict of interests to resolve. The accents may be unfamiliar, but there is an obligatory white phone box shot to keep regular Hullensians happy, and Tiger Nationals can marvel at the fan garb of the day. Here’s part one, with parts two and three to follow on successive days.

    Cheers Les for posting. This is the film some of us went to see at the Vue in Hull with the director Mark Herman. It is actually very funny and fully deserving of its Oscar.

    Radio Humberside in conjuction with Mark Herman were hoping to release it on dvd but I haven’t heard anything. I will ask.
