1920's Boy was made in the late 1970s by an amateur filmmaker, Mr Ron Broadbent of Keighley, who was a member of the local cine-club. A historically significant film based on illustrator and artist Mr Stanley R. Boardman's 1973 book '1920's Boy: Reminiscences of a Yorkshire Childhood', it used a combination of Mr Boardman's storytelling in a strong regional accent, his paintings, and live footage of the present day filmed by Mr Broadbent to give the viewer an often comical glimpse of children growing up in the area in the 1920s. The film was a great success as it won The Institute of Amateur Cinematographers Daily Mail Challenge Trophy for the Best Amateur Movie of the Year in 1978, though there was some controversy at the time as the film needed 'translation' for people to understand the broad Yorkshire accent.
