Storyline

Together they negotiate the rough and tumble world of the silent movie business, with dreams of having their own production company. In the process, they become partners indeed.

User Reviews

One of the best flicks I've seen on PBS
28 November 2003 | by (Atlanta USA) – See all my reviews

A total delight and very very funny. All the characters (especially Arnie and Maud) are believable and lovable. I was first introduced to Bob Hoskins in this film and have been an ardent admirer of his extraordinary talent ever since.

But whatever happened to Frances de la Tour?

Please bring Flickers back by re-run or by any other means. Would love to have my personal video or DVD.
