Humpty Dumpty is a feature length documentary which delves into the largely unknown story of Tommy Quickly.
Everyone in the known world has heard of the legendary Beatles. Many will know of their fellow music stable mates Billy J Kramer, Cilla Black and Gerry and the Pacemakers – all of which where managed and discovered by the iconic Brian Epstein. Tommy was also part of this illustrious stable, but from ‘what we know’ his career took a very different path.
This film is presented throughout by two Liverpool actors, musicians and friends: Andrew Gower and Stephen Walters. They first met on the set of NBC’s series A.D. – The Bible Continues filmed in Morocco. By a quirk of fate Stephen was about to start the second series of Starz hit show Outlander, when Andrew was also cast in the series. There was instant connection over their mutual obsession of the Merseybeat era. It was these conversations that gave birth to the idea of Humpty Dumpty.
