Next To The Last Of Universal Holmes Series
A great train/murder mystery,starring the great Basil Rathbone,my favorite Holmes,and favorite actor.
Terror by Night a Real Gem(1946)Spoiler Alert
Sherlock Holmes(Basil Rathbone) on a train to Edinburgh, Scotland, attempts to solve the possible robbery of the "Star of Rhodesia" and several murders associated with the gem. Dr. John H. Watson (Nigel Bruce) mostly used for comic relief excels to help Sherlock solve the mystery. Alan Mowbray a, very under-rated and wonderful Actor stars as the foil in the play.Deep characters , an interesting story-line, and taught direction keep this Sherlock Holmes thriller on "track." Excellent acting by all. 4 .5 star out of 5.
Great Train Mystery
This is one of my favorites from Basil's Holmes series. Love mysteries set on trains anyway, and this is one of the best ones. Holmes, Watson are in fine form, with several familiar supporting actors reappearing as well. Great pace, and with some humorous moments too. Fine for a Saturday (or a Monday)afternoon. And Happy Birthday to the greatest of all Sherlock Holmes; he should have been knighted for his work in the role!!
A Great Holmes Film
To me,Rathbone will always be "The Sherlock Holmes".Jeremy Brett was good,but here is the master.This,and The Scarlet Claw are the best of the Universal series,the best of all was 1939's The Hound of the Baskervilles.
A suspenseful Holmes movie
Beats Guy Ritchie's SHERLOCK HOLMES hand-over-fist
Best Holmes in Public Domain
Always have watched this one when it's been on Cable.Love the scene of Holmes seeing the countryside speeding by outside the train.
