It's easy to see The Arsenal Stadium Mystery as a major influence on the much better remembered Green For Danger. Like the later film it has a fairly ingenious murder in an unusual location, but the thing that makes it rise above the norm is the delightful eccentricity of the Scotland Yard detective in the case. In this case it's Leslie Banks' clearly gay Inspector Slade, choosing different hats for different suspects, at times more concerned with getting his chorus line of dancing policemen in tutus into shape for opening night of the Policemen's Ball: he's so confident of a result he doesn't even bother to go to the crucial match replay that will expose the murderer of one of an amateur team of footballers, merely sending one of his hats to his subordinate because he's got more important things to do. Now very much a historical curio, offering the chance to see Arsenal's last match before the beginning of World War Two commentated by Gaumont British newsreel narrator E.V.H. Emmett (you probably know the voice even if you don't know the name), with the impending war announcing its presence with the odd newspaper poster proclaiming `We warn Hitler's English friends!', it's terrific fun.
