Thanks for the memory.

I am a George Best fanatic, I admit it. This film was made in 1970 by the late German director Hellmuth Costard and I for one will always be grateful that he, at least, had the vision to follow the maestro doing what he did best, not shagging and not drinking but playing the beautiful game. Six cameras were trained on the Manchester United legend during a First Division match against Coventry City at Old Trafford in September, 1970. We get the whole game, from the warm-up onwards. Of course the other players can be glimpsed, Charlton and Law among them, but there is no doubt as to who is the star of the show. The result is a fascinating, and quite moving, portrait of a man who was his own worst enemy, but who lit up the World of football for a few short years. We see the familiar short shuffle, the sudden burst of electric pace and yes, a text-book goal. There is a shot of George at half-time( obviously added later,as he has a beard) where he stares into the camera and we are invited to look into his mind, what is he thinking? If you are in any way a fan of GB, then get this. I got my copy from the company who produced it, very helpful they were too. Hellmuth...danke.
