In Terror By Night actor Dennis Hoey returned to the role of "Inspector Lestrade" after not appearing in two previous Sherlock Holmes films. This was his last appearance in the series. Although the onscreen credits say "adapted from a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle," the source has not been identified and it is possible that only the characters were used for this film. For additional information on the Sherlock Holmes series and other films featuring the Arthur Conan Doyle characters, please consult the Series Index and see the entry above for Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror and the entries for Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles in AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.4020 and F3.2009.
