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

Mill Creek released a 4-dvd set called `The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes,' which included 4 movies and all 39 episodes of the Sherlock Holmes television series, starring Ron Howard (the son of actor Leslie Howard) and H. Marion Crawford. Produced in 1954 by Sheldon Reynolds, the television episodes borrowed heavily from the Sherlock Holmes series of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, thus making the shows a wonderful tribute to the London-based detective.

The first show, `The Cunningham Heritage,' provides an introduction to Dr. John Watson and Sherlock Holmes. The first 15 minutes of the show is a close approximation to the introduction of the two characters in `A Study in Scarlet,' the novella that introduced Holmes and Watson to the reading public.

Seven episodes from the television show are derived from the short stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. `The Engineer's Thumb' and `The Red Headed League' from `The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' were made into television episodes called `The Shoeless Engineer' and `The Red Headed League.' `The Musgrave Ritual' and `The Greek Interpreter' of `The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes' are similar to `The Greystone Inscription' and `The French Interpreter' in the television series. In `The Musgrave Ritual,' the story involved a search for items of King Charles II, the king who succeeded the reign of Oliver Cromwell and the Roundheads in 1660. `The Greystone Inscription' used an ancient family ritual to lead to artifacts from the reign of Richard II.

In His Last Bow, `The Adventure of the Devil's Foot' - which Holmes calls the Cornish horror - is similar to the episode `Exhumed Client.
