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 (1)

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.

Audience Reviews for The Arsenal Stadium Mystery

A very good film. Not available in the united States but you can order the DVD from the UK. Make sure you get a multi region DVD player first. They will play any DVD in the world instead of just American DVD's
