Movie Info

The game of football figures prominently in The Arsenal Stadium Mystery -- not the American gridiron version, but the soccer-style competition played in England. The focus is on Anthony Bushell, playing a champion British football player. Bushell is poisoned to death during a game, in full view of a capacity crowd. Police inspector Leslie Banks enters the scene to determine who, why, and how. Like many British programmers of the 1930s, Arsenal Stadium Mystery was an early arrival on American television. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Arsenal Stadium Mystery

All Critics (3)

The explanation of the murder depends on another death outside the story and a coroner's report, and Mr. Dickinson's skill is never more evident than in his grim sad dramatisation of the dull typewritten pages.

October 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The plot is complicated, and not always easy to follow, but this is readily overlooked in the excitement of really well-staged football sequences, and the presence on the screen of a famous team and its Manager and Trainer.

The movie has more than a few good qualities, most notably the presence of Leslie Banks as the wonderfully droll police inspector. He pretty much makes the show.
