The Howerd Confessions

Thames Television 1976

The six different playlets, supposedly relating to episodes from Howerds's past, saw Frankie play characters in his full over-the-top inimatable style. In his 'Confessions' Frankie reveals how his George Formby impressions helped win World War II; tells about the time when he NEARLY got married; lets slip about how he came to be in possession of a stolen grandfather clock and then discloses his saga of Howerd the Criminal and Howerd the Private Eye.
