Editorial Reviews

39 Specially written, thirty-minute TV Sherlock Holmes' films made starring Ronald Howard as Holmes and Howard Marion as Watson. They were produced by Sheldon Reynolds and filmed and scored in France. Ronald Howard was the son of the actor Leslie Howard, with whom he appeared in Pimpernel Smith. Howard Marion-Crawford is one of those rare Holmes-Watson actors.

This delightful collection of adventures infuses the wonderful Holmes mysteries with fresh energy and vigor that provides hours of thrilling entertainment. Each disk is prefaced with an introduction by Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings) who re-invigorated the role of Holmes in later features.

Format: DVD
After numerous DVD releases of random episodes from this delightful 1954-55 series, Mill Creek Entertainment finally brings us all 39 episodes in a single collection. The episodes are not restored, i.e., the prints have scratches and blemishes from time-to-time, and there is noticeable audio hiss. However, they're still very watchable and enjoyable and I found them to be of somewhat better quality than the Madacy volumes that are also sold at Amazon (10 and 20 episode collections). Because of their comparatively short running times (the shows were produced for a 30 minute time slot), the mysteries really never get too complex . . . I like to call this series Sherlock Holmes "lite." It's the great period flavor (the production design is superior for a television show from the mid-1950s), and the interaction of the three lead actors, Ronald Howard as Sherlock Holmes, H. Marion Crawford as Dr. Watson and Archie Duncan as Inspector Lestrade that make this show an entertaining view. The only bonus item on this DVD set is the "generic" Christopher Lee introduction that's seen at the beginning of each disc and has previously appeared on the Madacy collections (they're not "all new introductions" as the cover art suggests).

Bottom line: While one wishes that this series would get the full restoration treatment, that's unlikely to happen, and this release certainly isn't for the "high definition" crowd. But this attempt to collect all of the series' episodes in a single DVD set, in correct broadcast order, is praiseworthy, and the "icing on the cake" is Amazon's comparatively bargain price for 39 episodes of an entertaining, early television series. Recommended.

Since Amazon did not have a picture of this item at the time this review was originally written, and the "marketplace client" who was selling it for next to nothing did not respond to my email for 2 weeks where I requested to know if this set is what I NOW know it is, being the "Sherlockian" I am, I did some "reason by deduction" and bought this set new from BBC America on January 14th, they shipped it on the 17th from near Philly, and it was handed to me by a UPS man as I walked into my building coming home from work on the 18th (despite their claim it would take 10-14 days to get to me). So now I can review it for y'all. This is a 5 dvd set of a 39 half hour b/w series syndicated during the 1954-1955 tv season. It stars Ronald Howard (son of Leslie NOT Ron "Happy Days" Howard) as Holmes and Howard (billed by his first initial "H" so not to be confused with his costar's last name) Marion Crawford as Watson. Some of the stories are based on actual Doyle stories, but most are not. They are still very entertaining. I called this "a rare find" because to the best of my knowledge this is the only dvd set of the FULL series. The only other time I saw a complete copy was a 10 VHS set many moons ago (thank God now I didn't buy it). A number of inexpensive DVD manufacturers offer it installments, the best being Alpha Video's 4 episode per disc copies that (as of my last birthday in 2005) have only released 7 discs for a total of 28 episodes, and another set of 5 discs I saw at Best Buy for the same 20 bucks I bought this for with only 20. (Update: there's yet another incomplete set coming out now (November 2006: 27 episodes for 10 bucks). So this could very well be the only complete version out there. Now for you technical geniuses out there here's the ups and downs.Read more ›

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The SHERLOCK HOLMES TV series was an American-made program, filmed in France. The show originally aired from October 18, 1954 to October 17, 1955. Regular cast members were Ronald Howard (son of Leslie) as Holmes, Howard Marion-Crawford played Dr. Watson, and Archie Duncan was Inspector LeStrade. Additionally, a company of regulars made frequent appearances, each time as different characters. There were occasional guest stars as well, like Paulette Goddard and Natalie Schafer.

This MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT box set of 5 DVDs runs 19.5 hours, and includes all 39 original installments. The following in-order program list provides original airdates and supporting actors for each episode.
