NOTES

"Two profiles pasted together." --Dorothy Parker describing Rathbone

"Basil Rathbone was the best all around villain the movies ever had ... adept at any kind of role, including romantic drama and comedy ... at his best in villainy (including modern wife-killers and Nazis) and was absolutely unmatched at playing swaggering scoundrels of other days, where his rich delivery of full-blooded dialogue, while attired in doublets or court finery, made him truly a sight to behold -- and listen to." --From "The Bad Guys" by William K. Everson
