Love Match, The (1955)

Bill Brown (Arthur Askey) and Wally Binns (Glenn Melvyn) are a pair of football-mad railway men.

Bill has misplaced £55 of union money, his son Percy (James Kenney) has the chance to play professionally for United (sadly, Bill is a City fanatic and hates United) and his daughter, Rose (Shirley Eaton) has a new ballroom dancing partner and boyfriend, Alf Hall (Danny Ross).

The movie was based on a play written by Melvyn and led to a spin-off TV series called Love and Kisses.
