Customer Reviews

The picture quality of the DVD series is a distraction.
Scrapple8
Ronald Howard as Holmes and Howard Marion-Crawford as Watson are not as good as the film Holmes and Watson (Rathbone and Bruce).
Bennet Pomerantz
Note: the CD with the two of the feature films has no label at all, totally blank.

Format: DVD
When I put the disc into the player I thought I was watching a series from the early 1930s based on the decrepid deteriorating film quality. How can a TV show from the 1950s be this bad of shape? But it is. Hence the price.

What's really odd is that they throw in ONE of Basil Rathbone's Sherlock films into the mix...what's he got to do with any of this? Was it done to mislead buyers so Basil's face can appear on the cover instead of Ronald Howard's? Makes no sense, the set contains 39 of R. Howards Sherlock series, 3 movies from the 1930s and just one of Basil's.

What I do like is that they imprinted the episode # and title on the discs so when you are looking for a certain episode you can quickly find it by reading the label on the disc. 39 episodes are split among 3 discs. The 4th disc contains the 4 movies.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, 1954 film

This DVD set contains thirty-nine 30 minute television episodes (recorded in Extended Play mode) on three single-sided discs. There are four Sherlock Holmes movies from the 1930s-1940s on a double-sided disc. The movies are often found on other collections of movies from that era. There is another product that does not use EP for better video quality with the thirty-nine episodes. The episodes are lower budget productions. Some stories have humor. Some actors speak with an accent. How many were inspired by the original stories of A. Conan Doyle?

The TV series stars Ronald Howard as "Sherlock Holmes", Howard Marion Crawford as "Dr. Watson", and Archie Duncan as "Inspector Lestrade". Note the actors that reappear.

I bought this DVD believing Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce would star in the majority of the movies. Nope, only one -- The Woman In Green. But I found Ronald Howard and Howard Marion-Crawford and those two as Holmes and Watson were terrific.Their episodes are on three discs and I hated to see them end. This duo were great. There were several episodes that were top notch. The last disc had four full length movies, all but Woman In Green were a waste of time and disc space. Three stars because I was disappointed that Rathbone and Bruce were not featured more than once.

Format: DVD
The 1954-1955 Sherlock Holmes show, which made the rounds of PBS stations for years, has been released again to home video. This show that was fully shot in France with a full British cast was shown in 30 minute episodes. This 39 Holmes adventures were well crafted short shows and is in the originak Black and white, but the script quality was there for the 1950 show.

Ronald Howard as Holmes and Howard Marion-Crawford as Watson are not as good as the film Holmes and Watson (Rathbone and Bruce). However they will keep you interested.

Thr problem of these episodes on DVD seem almost washed out like they are a copy of a copy transfers. The sound quality is sometime muddled. But these 1959 shows are worth watching, Just dont watch all the 19 abd a half hours in one sitting.

Also, on this collection is four Holmes films..The Woman in Green (with Rathbone & Bruce) and three early Holmes from the 1930's with Arthur Wontner. The transfer is weak on these as well. Mill Creek has done better transfers to DVD!

For those who havent seen it, get it... watch it..for others , its worth a look.

I give it three stars for great content, but weak picture

This is a nice little set of Holmes adventures featuring 3 different interpretations of The Great Detective.

First you have The Woman in Green, starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Holmes must solve a series of murders that each involve the same set of weird details, but that seem unrelated in other respects. Scotland Yard, as usual in these movies, is on the wrong track, but Holmes eventually hounds out the truth which involves severed finger, Professor Moriarty and a beautiful, evil and icy hypnotist played by Hilary Brooke.

Murder at the Baskervilles stars Arthur Wontner as Holmes and Ian Fleming as Watson. While vacationing at Baskerville Hall they run across a case of murder most foul in a story based on the original Silver Blaze. Wontner played his Holmes a little differently than Rathbone, making him a bit more pleasant and his relationship with Watson more congenial.

The Sign of the Four also stars Arthur Wontner as Sherlock Holmes. This time a young woman turns to Sherlock Holmes for protection when she's menaced by an escaped killer seeking missing treasure. However, when the woman is kidnapped, Holmes and Watson must penetrate the city's criminal underworld to find her. It's based more or less on the original story by Doyle. Again Wontner portrays a wryly intelligent Holmes that operates a little less arrogantly than Rathbone's portrayal.

In The Triumph of Sherlock Holmes good old Sherlock, retired to Sussex, takes on an American secret society known as the Scowlers. The movie sticks relatively close to the source material, in this case THE VALLEY OF FEAR. It is good stuff and probably my favorite of the Wontner Holmes movies.
