By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 Mar. 2010
Format: DVD
There have been only two long-running Sherlock Holmes actors who were really memorable: Jeremy Brett, and Basil Rathbone. And Rathbone is showcased at his best in one of the early stories about the legendary detective, "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," an atmospheric and twisting murder mystery.The one downside: Nigel Bruce's goofy Watson.

Sherlock Holmes (Rathbone) arrives at the courthouse a minute too late, and angrily watches his nemesis Professor Moriarty (George Zucco) go free because of a lack of evidence. Sick of Holmes' investigations, Moriarty decides to utterly ruin Holmes with the most notorious and memorable crime in English history -- by distracting him with a bizarre threat to a young woman.

Specifically, a wealthy young lady arrives at his office, distraught because of a threatening picture that she got in the mail -- and in short order, her brother is murdered, even as her lawyer/suitor tries to convince her not to depend on the detective. Holmes becomes wrapped up in the potential murder, as the stressed-out police try to get him to pay attention to a threat to the Crown Jewels. Will he realize what's truly going on in time, or will Moriarty pull off the crime of the century?

"The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" was one of the movies that cemented Basil Rathbone as THE Sherlock Holmes, at least until Jeremy Brett entered the scene. It's also one of the better movies that was spun up in the 1930s and 1940s -- a brilliant double-whammy of intertwined cases, deaths and bizarre happenings. And a brilliantly weird Moriarty to boot ("You've murdered a FLOWER!").

Though the whole movie takes place in London, the director cultivated a misty murky atmosphere, in which a corner could hold a murderer and people are never what they seem.

Classic Sherlock Holmes with Basil Rathbone great entertainment even today. I think Basil Rathbone is probably the best Sherlock Holmes, he interprets the character so well that you believe it. The film is beautifully shot with a great cast and very entertaining if you are into Sherlock Holmes stories.

High production values; excellent acting; witty dialogue; superb atmospherics of moody, spooky lighting and gothicky shadows; resplendent Ida Lupino; Basil Rathbone singing 'I Do like to Be Beside the Seaside' very well. None of this can, however, disguise the hula-hoop sized holes in the plot including the fact that Sherlock cannot see what's right in front of his marvellous nose. From a play rather than an actual Holmes story I think, so that's the reason that it ultimately falls into the 'ho-hum' category. Holmes solves the crime by that well-worn ruse of word-association where a detective says something inconsequential to himself and then realises 'that's it'! E.G. Now where did I put that fork? That's it! The fork in the road on the way to Maidstone - why didn't I think of that before! Let's get there before it's too late!!

Rathbone was, for 'Sherlock Holmes', what Connery was for 'James Bond'. In my humble opinion, no one else comes close to either! As for Nigel Bruce's 'Watson' being 'goofy', he simply adds an element of charm and indeed humour, to a collection of brilliant classics.

The best outing for Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes.

It has far more depth than the slightly thin adaptation of Hound of the Baskervilles, featuring the same main actors.

Downside to this DVD is it has no extras, not even a trailer and no work has been done to polish the picture quality or sound, so it does look rough. It also lacks any subtitles.

However the film itself is the most important thing and this is excellent.
