    Editors Note
    Note Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce played the deductive genius Sherlock Holmes and his mystified colleague Dr. Watson in these classic 1930s and 1940s films. Painstakingly restored by the UCLA Film Archive, these beautiful black and white remastered editions capture the lighting, the nuance, and the sound of the films in a way that had been lost for decades. This collection brings together 14 films in which Holmes must confront cunning schemes and confounding mysteries.

    Review [Terror] There are a couple of decent action scenes, some clever plot twists, and the steady rattling of the passenger cars to remind the viewer of crime and justice rushing onward. What a joy it is to watch Rathbone fool everyone in the movie and no one in the audience by palming the jewel and replacing it with an imitation. And what a thrill to see the murderer shove Holmes outside the speeding train and lock the door, assuming that one need do no more to dispose of the great detective. It gets better every time you play it.

    Review [Hound] The first Rathbone Sherlock Holmes film became "The Hound of the Baskerville", filmed for 20th Century Fox in 1939. Opposite to Holmes, Nigel Bruce was cast as Dr. Watson. Bruce had made a career out of playing a buffoon and gave Watson a na•ve yet faithful quality, which created a unique dynamic between the two characters. A grand and authentic production, "The Hound of the Baskerville" became such a success, that Fox the same year made "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", this time with top billing for Rathbone and Bruce.

    Review [Faces] If you see the title of this film and think, "What's new?" you're both right and wrong. Sure, the brilliant Holmes (Basil Rathbone) faces death in every adventure, especially in the modernized series of Universal films where he faces off against Nazis and spies. But there is a newness to this installment - even though that newness is a return to an older mode, so perhaps I've just talked myself into a corner. Although this film, like the three before it, places Holmes and his trusty friend Watson (Nigel Bruce) in Word War II-era England, for the first time since Universal took over the series they're up against good, old-fashioned murderers. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have been pleased.
