Featuring Arsenal’s 1938/39 team line-up and an arguably career-best performance from Leslie Banks as an impeccably eccentric detective, The Arsenal Stadium Mystery remains both a classic whodunit and a high-water mark for pre-war British film. You can read our Cult Movie Essentials article on the movie HERE.
Directed by Oscar-nominated Thorold Dickinson, it is featured here as a remaster from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
