Emil and the Detectives is a 1935 British family adventure film directed by Milton Rosmer and starring John Williams, George Hayes and Mary Glynne.

It is a remake of the 1931 German film Emil and the Detectives with the main setting moved from Berlin to London. Otherwise it follows the original very closely, largely using Billy Wilder's screenplay, the music by Allan Gray, even recreating many of the same camera shots. It was made at Shepperton Studios.[1]

While on a train from his home in the countryside to stay with his grandfather in London, a boy named Emil suspects that he has been robbed of his money by a suspicious-looking man in the same carriage wearing a bowler hat. In London, with the help of a gang of street children, he pursues the suspect until he is eventually able to recover the money.
