Synopsis:
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 1970's 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.
