The 1932 Arsenal cup final with action replays, and 3 Arsenal stars kicking football into a washing machine.

By Tony Attwood

We’ve recently placed a film including slow-mo replays of the 1932 FA Cup final on the Arsenal History site, as part of our complete review of Arsenal in the 30s.

So, since the History Society website has its own unusual film, why not Untold.

This is Wilshere, Koscielny and Iwobi kicking balls into a front loader washing machine.

I trust you will find at least one of these two videos exciting, illuminating and exhilarating.

    Tony, you aren’t getting any comments.

    Whether any of what follows can beat the 1932 FA Cup Final, or 3 Gunners kicking balls into a washing machine, I don’t know.

    1932, the year that Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and Shirley Temple all started. Shanghai Express was the top grossing film, with Marlene Dietrich. Grand Hotel with Greta Garbo, John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Wallace Beery and Lionel Barrymore camein second, and grabbed all the silverware at the Academy Awards.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Nicky knows all those people listed at Wikipedia.

    Average yearly salary, $1328. Meat at the grocery looks to be in the $0.20 to $0.30 per pound. A cross Atlantic round trip on the Hindenburg, $720.

    I see “I Don’t Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You”, “Love Me Tonight”, “Waltzing in a Dream” by der Bingle. Fred Astaire topped Billboard with “Night and Day”. Der Bingle had 5th place with “Dinah”. (I’m trying to collect Bing Crosby’s music.) In the list of top hits, more of Bing.

  • Thanks Gord. There is also a fair amount about 1932 in the Arsenal in the 30s series on the Arsenal History Site. There’s an index to all the articles on
