- General info
Filmed in Rusholme, Manchester, for the great Mancunian Film Corporation, 'Cup-Tie Honeymoon' is a riotous post-war comedy from the North of England where the gags come quicker than the team's wingers! Joe Butler (Sandy Powell) is the soccer-mad son of the company chairman, who has to decide which team he will play for in a cup-tie: his school or his father's. If he makes the right decision he can also score with his dad's pretty secretary! Features an excellent supporting cast of Dan Young, Betty Jumel and Pat Phoenix, most of the film was shot on local streets and at Manchester City's Maine Road stadium.

A delightful old relic
- Cup-Tie Honeymoon review by Promessi
I feel unkind to give this only 3 stars. It is such a delight,humane and warm-hearted. Then again it is so unsophisticated even by the standards of 1948 as to be a fearful lot of tosh. There are a few genuinely funny moments but this one is really notable for its historic interest. The popular comedian Sandy Powell is worth seeing. Incidentally,he is not the footballer as stated in the blurb -- I think that's an actor named McGrath. The only other name of curiosity interest is Pat Pilkington who became Pat Phoenix or Elsie Tanner,though the comedienne Betty Jumel is a find -- an excellent performer at a time when comic characters were mosty men.Shots of Maine Road on real match days will delight soccer fans. Sadly there are virtually no exterior shots apart from those.
