  • Short Summary

    Quirky stuff - probably designed for children - a silly indoor game and games played in the street. c. 1950

  • Description

    Bantam Pack - sporting types.

    Large group of people in what looks like a snooker hall. Men sit around a snooker table and blow an egg along trying to get it through mini goal posts and stop it from going into the pockets. C/U of the men's faces and women laughing, especially when one of the players' false teeth fall out onto the table.

    Shot of a sign saying: "Play Street - Prohibited All Vehicles". A group of boys play hockey on roller skates. Women watch from a window. Much falling over and general high jinx. A boy with his coat over his head whistles through his fingers. Good shot of start of game and the "bully off". Shot of girl spectators. Basketball players, could be the Harlem Globetrotters. Lots of fancy moves. Game played in a large indoor stadium, could be the United States of America.
