Cricket Notes 1924 1924

1 mins United Kingdom

Bad weather interrupting cricket has always been a cue for humour, on the radio in the Test Match Special, on TV coverage and elsewhere. Meteorological records show that the summer of 1924 was unusually wet and cool, leaving a cricket-shaped gap for the newsreels to fill. In this instance, Gaumont Graphic rose to the occasion with two animated cartoons, An Umpire Inspecting the Pitch and The Last Man In, which provide a comical commentary on the situation.
