Description by OLDIES.com:
Rife with snappy dialogue, brisk pacing, and sharp performances, The Hollywood Stadium Mystery (a.k.a. The Stadium Murders) is a tightly-executed whodunit and a fine example of what smaller studios were capable of during Hollywood's golden era. The opening credit sequence is particularly inventive with its clever use of newspaper headlines to kick off the action. Director David Howard handles the mystery genre with panache, despite a career that centered mostly on adventures and western films like Six-Gun Gold, Painted Desert and Daniel Boone. Neil Hamilton later gained fame as white-haired Commissioner Gordon in the 1966 TV-series "Batman." The ringside radio commentator in The Hollywood Stadium Mystery was Jimmy Wallington, a real-life announcer whose voice was heard on such programs as "The Life Of Riley" and "Stranger Than Fiction."
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 165 ratings.
This isn't a great flick but by B movie standards, I found it a notch above the rest. It's fun seeing a young Commissioner Gordon of TV's Batman (Neil Hamilton) playing a dashing playboy type. And the ending surprised me when the killer was identified. It's...no, I won't spoil it for you.
