  • Description

    £100 cash prize is on offer for this cartoon competition - and other consolation prizes. This is the second of ten cartoons by "Poy" the famous cartoonist. The cartoon represents the title of a well-known play. The competition entrants have to guess the answers to all ten to be in for a chance. "Simply send a postcard to Pathe's, 103 Wardour Street, London W1..."

    C/U of Poy as he rolls out his piece of paper preparing to draw. Through stop frame animation we see the drawing take shape. It seems to represent a cricket match between "Knights and Yokels." The knight in the crease says: "Gadzooks! Bowled!" as the ball hits the stumps. Poy signs the cartoon at the bottom. "Did you "get" it?" Six of the original Poy cartoons (framed) are to be awarded as consolation prizes. "Full details on a Poster at this Theatre."

    Note: any ideas? Answers on a postcard please to British Pathe, Pinewood Studios...
