Description

This is a duplicate of item 1592.12 - check for best quality. Australia. Introductory intertitle reads: "Meet an Australian friend of ours - "Towser" Oldfield, who snaps 'em up behind the wicket in first-class style." C/U of a black dog - probably a Labrador - who stands beside some cricket stumps. L/S shows that Towser is a wicket keeper in a game of cricket. A man bowls to a young boy. He misses the ball but Towser picks it up. Various shots of Towser in action. He grabs the ball and returns it to the bowler. He even catches one of the boys out. Cool.
