Directed by the prolific Maurice Elvey, THE GREAT GAME is a relatively interesting portrait of the downfall of the chairman of a British soccer club who compromises his integrity in an attempt to keep his First Division team from being relegated (the equivalent of a major league baseball

franchise being consigned to AAA ball because of its poor record). When his shady attempt to obtain a star player is discovered, the director (James Hayter) is forced to resign, and after returning to his publishing business, he learns that it, too, has fallen on hard times.
