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.
This is one of the later Rathbone & Bruce pairings. Sherlock has time traveled into the early 1940's but the mystery and magic of Holmes is still as gripping as always.Published 4 months ago by Gary Jenkins

Basil Rathbone is *the* Sherlock Holmes
(he's such a talented actor)
Both of these movies are excellent. Faces of Death is superior but both are excellent. I can and do watch Faces of Death at least once a month.... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Kathleen M.
