The Matinee Idol - Edinburgh College of Art graduation film.
Directed by Charley Fox and Produced by Derek Russell.
The Matinee Idol: Walter Hopkirk is one of the biggest stars of the British silent screen. He has captured the heart of the nation and is now set to become a star of the talking era, or so he thought. Everything seems perfect until one day Walter notices his first talking film is being pulled from cinemas. He immediately makes his way to the studio and upon his arrival he is informed that he is no longer a marketable leading man due to his broad working class accent. A heated debate arises between Walter and the heads of the studio to determine his future as a star.
