The Game That Kills is a 1937 American mystery sport film directed by D. Ross Lederman and starring Charles Quigley and Rita Hayworth.
After his brother is killed on the ice during a hockey game, Alex Ferguson, convinced it was no accident, goes undercover as a new player to discover the truth.
Alex falls for Betty Holland, the coach's daughter. He ultimately learns that team owner Maxwell is in cahoots with gamblers, as are a couple of his players, and coach Joe Holland is in debt to them.
