Watched Sherlock Holmes The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) the other night and loved it. Now watching Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1943). Getting to know Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce as Holmes & Watson is quite enjoyable. Especially when Holmes is in disguise (voice and dress) on screen in close ups and you don’t even notice it’s him at all until his reveals himself. Don’t make movies like this anymore. Characters are great. Think once I am done with my Cussler series, I will take up the Holmes series.
