Dressed to Kill
This classic mystery was the fourteenth and final film with Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. John Watson. This popular detective story, also known as Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Code, pits the great detective against a female antagonist, Hilda Courtney, played by Patricia Morison. Here Watson's old schoolmate, Julian "Stinky" Emery, is murdered after buying a music box. This leads the famous duo to a gang stealing music boxes that mysteriously contain key information that will lead them to getting money.
The Secret Weapon
Inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Dancing Men mystery, this film stars Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes, Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson, and Lionel Atwill as the evil Professor Moriarty, who kidnaps a noted government scientist, Dr. Franz Tobel, during World War II. The doctor has important bombsight information the Professor could sell to the Germans. It's up to Holmes to use tricks and disguises to rescue the scientist and help the Allies.
Terror By Night
Basic Rathbone stars as Sherlock Holmes, Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson, Dennis Hoey as Inspector Lestrade, and Alan Mowbray as Watson's old friend, Major Duncan-Bleek, in this suspense-packed mystery that takes place on an express steam train racing from London to Edinburgh, Scotland. Lady Margaret Carstairs' son is found murdered and her 423-karat diamond, known as the "Star of Rhodesia," has been stolen. It takes Holmes' best efforts to find the killer among the many eccentric and suspicious passengers aboard the Scotland Express.
The Woman in Green
Loosely based on Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Empty House, this classic film stars Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson, and Hillary Brooke as the title character. A number of women have been murdered, and each has been found with her right forefinger missing. To find a link, the great detective allows himself to be hypnotized and the trail leads to a syndicate run by Holmes' arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty, brilliantly played by Henry Daniell. 45-46/10DE IJSCA 272 min.
