Product Description

Starting in Switzerland, Sherlock Holmes rescues the inventor of a bomb-sight which the allies want to keep from the Nazis. Back in London it sems that the inventor is not all that he seemed. Written by Michael Crew {}


By all the laws of nature and temporal consistency, too, our old friend, Sherlock Holmes, should be an octogenarian by now, and his famous familiar, Dr. Watson, should have long since been planted beneath the sod. But Universal Pictures, disregarding the literary traditions and time, has given those two beloved gentlemen the blessing of eternal youth and has set them to chasing Nazi villains in the war-consumed London of today with the same hale and vigorous tenacity as they showed toward opium smugglers years ago.

Thus, in their latest adventure, ""Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon,"" which came to the Rialto yesterday, we have the amazing spectacle of the Baker Street boys still at work, first protecting an eminent scientist who has perfected a marvelous new bomb-sight, and then uncovering the Nazi agents who almost swipe the scientist and device. And still Mr. Holmes is cool and cryptic, Dr. Watson is confident and denseand the head of the Nazi spy ring none other than Holmes's ancient antagonist, Moriarity.

Yes, by courtesy of Universal, Holmes is there to aid England in time of peril. Holmes and Dr. Watson. Or is it really they? Isn't it, perhaps, just Basil Rathbone with wind-blown hair and Nigel Bruce with wing collar, jaunting through another routine spy fiction? And isn't Moriarity just Lionel Atwill in professional garb? Reason compels the candid and disillusioning admission that it is. But the aura is still mysterious, the action is fast and tense. And the plot is sufficiently fantastic that no one is likely to swallow it. Let's make believe with Universal that Holmes isn't old and Dr. Watson isn't a shade. --The New York Times

Once again Sherlock Holmes doing what he does best with his trusty sidekick Watson. Holmes begins this story in disguise, helping to smuggle a famous physicist "Dr. Franz Tobel" out of Switzeralnad and under the watchful eye of the Nazis, who want his bomb sight plans. The Allies obviously want it too, and Sherlock is there to help.
The quality of this film is quite impressive for its age. A2ZCDS did a great job in remastering this film.
