Calling all fans of Everton FC

Comments (1)

As you may already be aware, Tabacula, a Liverpool based film company are currently in production of the definitive drama-documentary of one of Everton?s most iconic sons ? Dixie Dean, entitled Dixie: The People?s Legend. We have already begun to gather some old newsreel footage and some archive stills as well as some preliminary interviews. Regular updates of the projects progress can be seen at

In order to do Dixie?s story full justice the documentary will utilise traditional interviews, dramatic re-enactments of key moments in his life and an extensive use of archive footage, stills and audio. All visual records of the club at the time will be necessary to explore the life of the man and to highlight his amazing achievements.

We have the full support of Everton FC who has granted us access to their archives, the players and Goodison itself. We have also been lucky enough to gain access to Dr David France and his unbelievable collection.

As well as these excellent sources of archive stills we are still looking for any existing 1920?s & 30?s photos of the man, the club, newspaper archive or anything pertinent to the era.

If anyone has any old photographs or is aware of any other sources do not hesitate to get in touch at as we are currently scouring the country to amass all we can to bring this amazing story to the big screen.

Hi Jah

It?s always worth having a look at ebay and other auction sites for photos and the cigarette cards also old newspaper cuttings/stories from not just the Echo, but for instance the old Manchester newspapers re the 1933 final against Man City.
