DIXIE: THE PEOPLE'S LEGEND

Director:  Ian Lysaght

Producer:  Jah Jussa

Genre:  Documentary

William Ralph ‘Dixie’ Dean rose to fame in the 1920’s as the most prolific goal scorer of his generation.  Dixie’s record of 60 league goals in a season for Everton FC (1927-28) is unlikely to ever be broken.

In contrast to his modern day contemporaries, he was very much part of his native community.  His story has the hallmarks of the great sporting narrative (Babe Ruth, Jake La Motta). ‘Dixie The People’s Legend’ is not just a portrait of a footballing hero, but of a sporting era long lost to history.

The documentary will utilise traditional interviews as well as dramatic re-enactments of key moments in his life.  An atmospheric narration and extensive use of archive footage, stills and audio will tie the two styles together.

The dramatic imagery will meld the traditional documentary content and location shooting, building a more intimate portrait of the man and his times.  Despite his reaching mythic status in the world of football at the age of 21, he was never a wealthy man.  His story is largely untold.
