Today’s scans feature iconic movie The Arsenal Stadium Mystery. Although an earlier film (The Lucky Number) had heavily featured Arsenal and Highbury to set the story this film was very much based at Highbury and featured a charity match between Arsenal and The Trojans (played by Brentford) with one of their players being murdered. First released in November 1939 the football action was from the last game of the 1938/39 season and the film featured a host of Arsenal’s stars, with George Allison having a speaking role.
The first couple of scans are from Picturegoer Weekly (10-2-40). Sadly neither of the pictures below have backslips (although both have ‘Newcastle City Hall release Feb 19th’ hand written on the back).
