Who was the greatest Australian Rules football full forward of the pre-Second World War era? Victorians – even the many non-Collingwood loving footy fans – would find it hard to argue that Magpies sharpshooter Gordon ‘Nuts’ Coventry stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries, creating a goal-kicking record unsurpassed for more than half a century in the VFL/AFL. South Australian football fans however contend that North Adelaide spearhead Ken Farmer and his unequalled, decade-long run of annual century tallies in the SANFL had his Victorian counterpart covered.  A recent 35mm nitrate film find from a long forgotten 1933 football carnival would remarkably reveal rarely-seen footage of both AFL Hall of Famers, playing at opposite ends of the ground, in the same game.
