THIS is pure nostalgia.

It shows a time when cricket was important and a Test match had real meaning; and the times when the British cinema was having its heyday.

Simply, we have here director Anthony Asquith indulging in a sport which in terms of drama has not attracted much exposure on the large screen.

The story revolves around the last Test match of the series between England and Australia.

More important, too, it will be the last appearance of one of England's leading players.

Whatever Asquith was thinking at the time it has all the makings of a twist on the story of Don Bradman's last appearance in this country.
