Description

Amateur football team The Trojans are about to face their toughest challenge yet - a charity match with Arsenal in front of a capacity crowd at Highbury Stadium. During the match, the Trojan's star player - John Doyce (Anthony Bushell) - collapses and is pulled onto the sidelines. He is dead and it transpires that he has been poisoned. A recent addition to the Trojans, Doyce's abrasive attitude gained him few friends, so there is both motive and suspects in abundance. Scotland Yard sends in the eccentric Inspector Slade (Leslie Banks) to get to the bottom of things and catch the culprit - and he has just three days to do it before it interferes with his theatre performance!

Featuring Arsenal's 1938 Championship side and their manager George Allison, the match recorded for this film was Arsenal vs Brentford Town - this was Arsenal's last game before the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939. This was a key early film for Thorold Dickinson, a hugely influential name in British cinema who would be made Britain's first Professor of Film in 1967. Given this unique pedigree - coupled with a superbly eccentric performance from Leslie Banks - this film will appeal equally to both film buffs and football fans. This 35mm monochrome production has been digitally remastered to its original glory., Amateur football team The Trojans are about to face their toughest challenge yet - a charity match with Arsenal in front of a capacity crowd at Highbury Stadium.
