A collection of rare television pilots featuring the one and only Frankie Howerd
Born 6th March 1917, Francis Alick Howerd was once described by Barry Cryer as a comic actor whose career was a series of comebacks. Frankie Howerd was very successful in Britain, but found it harder to break into the US, Canadian and Australian markets. These pilots made in the 1970s provide a rare insight into his work abroad.
From these pilots, the most famous series is Up the Convicts, made by the 7 Network in Australia, and ran for just four episodes. Frankie played Jeremiah Shirk, sentenced to a penal colony in New South Wales, Australia. If you enjoy watching Up Pompeii then Up the Convicts will give you pleasure as well.
This collection includes:Up the Convicts - Episode Three, The Gong Show Pilot & The Frankie Howerd Show (CBC) - 2 Episodes
Collection of rare interviews with Frankie Howerd from Ryan's Roost, The Mike Douglas Show and The Merv Grffin Show.
