Yesterday's Hero is a 1979 British film starring Ian McShane, Suzanne Somers (in her film debut), Adam Faith, Paul Nicholas and Cary Elwes (in his film debut). It also features Glynis Barber and Emma Samms in their early performances. The screenplay was written by novelist Jackie Collins, but was an original work and not based on one of her books. Although it has echoes of the life of the former player George Best, the film is not biographical. The film is currently being shown by TalkingPictures TV (Freeview 81).
