Cup-Tie Honeymoon was the first motion picture to be filmed at the Dickenson Road Studios by the Mancunian Film Corporation in 1948, themed around football.[1]

Plot summary[edit]

A business man's son (Powell) has to choose between playing for his father's team and their rivals in a football match. He does the right thing and romantically impresses his father's secretary.



Filmed in Rusholme, Manchester, much of the shooting took place on local streets and at the nearby Maine Road stadium.

Cultural impact[edit]

Release of the film coincided with the start of the 1948 football season.
