How I Play Cricket

Australia, 1952 (MIFF 1997)

Director: James Hurll

This is a very entertaining and amusing look at the formative cricket practices of Don Bradman. A glimpse of Bradman's early years, highlighting the unconventional methods by which this cricketing legend perfected his game - from childhood bowling practice against a rainwater tank to becoming the game's first mega-star. "Magic Hands" himself presents some of his essential batting tips in slow motion. The commentary throughout this archival film is hilarious!
