Gerry gets his big break
21 September 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Brian Epstein who managed The Beatles who certainly brought the Liverpool sound to the world had many other artists under his management. One of those was Gerry And The Pacemakers who were the Beatles without the pageboy haircuts. Gerry was Gerry Marsden the lead singer and this film would have been a breakout for them as much as A Hard Day's Night would have been for the Fab four.

Ferry Across The Mersey was produced by Epstein and it not only features Gerry And The Pacemakers but a whole range of artists familiar to those who treasure the Liverpool rock scene. As for the plot it's simply Gerry's girl friend Julie Samuel getting manager T.P. McKenna to listen to the group and of course he likes them. When the guys are ready for their big break their instruments are misplaced and we get a Mack Sennett like car chase scene to retrieve them.

In A Hard Day's Night Wilfrid Brambell played Paul McCartney's grandfather and in this film Mona Washbourne plays Gerry Marsden's aunt with the same comic relief.

A pleasant diversion and a must if you are a fan of the Liverpool music scene.
