Editorial Reviews

Sherlock Holmes Faces Death
SHERLOCK HOLMES FACES DEATH (1943) is an intriguing mystery based upon Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s The Musgrave Ritual. Dr. Watson, tending recuperating soldiers housed at centuries-old Musgrave Manor, summons Sherlock Holmes to investigate strange happenings.  What follows is a bizarre series of events, including murders, secret passages, a game of chess and a mysterious family ritual. Even Inspector Lestrade is on hand, as well as lovely Hillary Brooke as Sally Musgrave.  But only Sherlock Holmes, in a race against time and a desperate killer, can decipher the ancient riddle and uncover the treasure it hides.
Sherlock Holmes in Washington
A British secret service operative, carrying top-secret microfilm from England to Washington, disappears while traveling to his destination. Fearing for his safety just before his disappearance, he passes the microfilm, ingeniously hidden, to another passenger on the train without her knowing.  The agent is reported missing and Sherlock Holmes is called in to investigate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sherlock Holmes Films October 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
It's nice that the Rathbone/Bruce Sherlock Holmes films are being remastered. These old films are good of their kind, but they were not in the best of shape. 'Sherlock Holmes Faces Death' is the better of the two films (it's based loosely on the story 'The Musgrave Ritual'). Any of the Sherlock Holmes films with Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce are worth watching. Although low budget (except the two made at Fox) they were well made & the acting can't be beat. The added commentary is also a plus. A must for the Sherlock Holmes fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for aficionados! September 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
This was a wonderful purchase. I am addicted to the Sherlock Holmes series with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Thank heaven there are people who work to restore these classics and make them available on DVD. This was an exciting purchase, because I thought I had seen all the Rathbone movies, but these two were new to me! "Sherlock Holmes Faces Death" became an instant favorite, which I watched three times the first day. Keep bringing the classics on, please! A+ to this purchase.

Excellent audio/video quality. Plots and actions only closely resemble the Sherlock Holmes adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but fun just the same.

I'm collecting all of the Holmes pieces. Sherlock Holmes goes to Washington is a great addition. I look forward to the other - faces death. Amazon.com is really a great resource to collect any media:-)

My wife ia a Sherlock Holmes fan, and I thought she had seen them all. But I was wrong, she hadn't seen these so they made a nice gift. They are classics from the 30's - excellent old movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars These two Holmes & Watson Best December 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Everyone has a opinion about whose the best Holmes and Watson team. Because they are clear and also understand what they are saying. The timing for each team to appear on screen is key. I have watched each teams of Holmes and Watson and by far my opinion is these two. I have all their Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson team of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce is my best team.
