Movie Info

Among the best-known of Republic's "B" pictures of the late 1930s, Hollywood Stadium Mystery is a neat and satisfying whodunit with very little "waste" footage. Neil Hamilton is his usual stalwart self as District Attorney Bill Devons, who tries to solve a murder that was committed in full view of hundreds of boxing fans at Legion Stadium. The victim was a contender for the championship, and there are no end of suspects to choose from. Complicating matters is the well-meaning but annoying interference of Polly Ward (Evelyn Venable), a murder-mystery writer who fancies herself a super sleuth. Radio personality Jimmy Wallington is appropriately cast as a glib sports commentator, while perennial cowboy sidekick Smiley Burnette shows up to offer a series of automobile imitations! Hollywood Stadium Mystery was written by Stuart Palmer, best known for his "Hildegarde Withers" stories.
