Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 12th, 2008

The needle to the last, eh, Holmes?

Favorite Movie Quote: ""This fortress - built by nature for herself; This blessed plot, this Earth, this realm, this England.""

I watched two very different Holmes adventures this morning, but you would be amazed at the similarities.

The was presumably the first collaboration between Basil Rathbone (If I Were King, Romeo and Juliet) and Nigel Bruce, and director Roy William Neill. It was not their first Sherlock Holmes adventure, as they did one a couple of years before this.

The made an excellent team, but I prefer the Hammer version, which I will talk about later.

Holmes relies on a lot of disguises to do his work, and I am constantly amused by the mannerisms displayed when they figure something out. They always seem to dash on when they find a new clue.

The story itself about keeping a bomb site from the Germans in WWII was interesting and kept you focused on the mystery.
