Amateur film-maker Malcolm Brinley Jones of Neath, a bricklayer by day and projectionist by night, pays homage to his artist/cartoonist friend Haydn Ford, also of Neath, who created a beautifully painted logo and title cards for the films. Haydn is seen here practising his art. His published works included a book of caricatures of The Invincibles (the Australian cricket team of 1948) and "Heads and Tails" a booklet of caricatures of 1950s Welsh rugby stars.
