1920s cricket featuring good C/Us of many players of the period.
Unidentified cricket item - not listed on sleeve. Seems to be a compilation of pieces from many different sources. Any information about players featured would be gratefully received.
Title of item missing. English cricketers of the 1920s. Percy Chapman, interviewed mid 1920s. Some players are seen in slow motion. One could be Percy Fender? 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. One player has a man standing behind him who appears to tickle his neck in a rather friendly manner! Lots of nice C/Us of the players. This looks like a compilation of pieces from many different sources. Panning team shots. Another team is shown - Australians?
Note: for search purposes: Harry Howell, Charles Parker.
Other players probably featured apart from those named are: Frank Woolley, Bill Hitch, Alan Kippax, Herbert Sutcliffe, Wally Hammond, Bill Ponsford, Arthur Mailey etc.
