I'll just note here that these films have not been digitally remastered if, by that, you mean that scratches and artefacts have been removed electronically. They have not been cleaned up in the way that the BBC Restoration Team did on Dr Who releases. Thus there are still some scratches and blobs, and a slight hiss on the soundtrack.
What has been done - as is clearly discussed on the extras feature - is that the best analogue prints have been sourced and missing bits (beginning and end credits usually) have been restored.
Thus what we have here is the best possible analogue prints transferred to DVD.
That said they are sparkling given that they are now some 70 years old. These were not the days of HD and 5.1 sound. It is almost certainly true that you've never seen these films look so good.
Very oddly for such a loving project, there are no subtitles. Very odd indeed.
14 very good quality films for (at present) about a pound each.
For what it's worth I think I'll side with Brett for his brooding, almost smouldering, portrayal. That plus the excellent Watson(s) and the glorious Victorian settings. But Rathbone has bearing, presence...and that voice. A close call and with DVDs at these prices (the Brett ones are on offer as I write) there's no reason why we can't have both the Brett and the Rathbone collections.
