KATHY BURKE, LEE EVANS, AND RAMSEY SWING BRIDGE?
So what do Kathy Burke, Lee Evans and Ramsey Swing Bridge have in common? A film call called the Martins. The film, The Martins was filmed on location in England and the Isle of Man. For once the Isle of Man isn't doubling as a different location, and is central to the plot. The bridge itself is can be seen quite cleary in a key scene behind the two main actors arguing on the harbour.
The Isle of Man has become something of a must for film makers. Many a Hollywood star and Britains finest, are to be found here filmimg anything from, "Keeping Mom" to "Waking Ned." Locals often appear as extras, and the stunning location certainly takes centre stage. Where else would you get Alec Baldwin to be"Mr Conductor" in "Thomas and The Magic Railroad?"You have to see it to believe it.
For a full list of Isle of Man films the Film Boards Link Is already on the right and link today is to IMDB where you can check out Isle of man film links you never knew exsisted.
