Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Badger's Green, a barnstorming British theatrical piece by R. C. Sheriff, was given its first talking picture treatment in 1934. The resident of a tiny English village love their cricket field. A huge, impersonal corporation wants to tear down the field and build an office complex. The villagers stage a revolt, with humorous (though not hilarious) results. While the rustic one-liners and stereotypical characterizations date the film, Badger's Green is blessed with a timeless premise. 16-year-old Valerie Hobson makes one of her first movie appearances herein.
