  • Description

    Unidentified cricket item - not listed on sleeve. Seems to be a compilation of pieces from many different sources.

    Title of item missing. English cricketers of the 1920s. Percy Chapman, interviewed mid 1920s. Some players are seen in slow motion. Intertitle reads: "...and a brilliant field." More slow motion footage. "Parker (Glos)" Gloucestershire player seen in C/U inside "picture frame" device, as is "Howell - Warwick's fast bowler." More shots of cricket action in slow motion. Nice C/U of unidentified player having a smoke. Lots of other players are seen in C/U including Jack Hobbs. Lots of nice C/Us of the players. This looks like a compilation of pieces from many different sources. Panning team shots.
