Sherlock Holmes Cinema 3 Disc Collector's Edition
Top Customer Reviews
These three DVDs contain ten movies in sound from the 1930s and 1940s. They are all interesting and enjoyable, some more than others. The best movies are the newest. Can you identify the original story that inspired these movies? Some of these movies are found in the "Mystery Classics 50 Movie Pack" which contain other mystery movies from that era. "The Deadly Necklace" is an interesting synthesis of Doyle's stories. You should find more detailed descriptions under each individual movie.
