Sherlock Holmes Double Feature (…In Washington + Faces Death/Rathbone/MPI DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C     Extras: C     Films: B-



PLEASE NOTE: These films are also now available in a Blu-ray set with all 14 films in the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce series that you can read more about at this link:





Sherlock Holmes, super sleuth, a man who uses his intellect to solve, deduce clues to solve whatever the murder maybe.  As Holmes and Watson arrive at the scene, they protect not only merry old England but save America from falling into the hands of it's enemies.  Their duty is not only to solve the case, but serve justice, freedom and protect it's citizens & victims from those who would prey on the innocent or weak.
The famous characters Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have been remade over time, again and again with different writers and directors to solve crime/murder mysteries.  In this classic version, he is now brought forward in times to solve more modern crimes long after the passing of his original creator and is now brought over to the United States not only the protector of Scotland Yard but of the America's citizens from Nazis and those who would do evil or commit murder.  In these black and white films, one can really notice when the directors were using the Sherlock Holmes character as a champion/hero to promote the fight against Germans and Nazis during WWII, as his character was transplanted to this time period by the time the series was at this point.  Extras include still gallery and audio commentary.

Sherlock Holmes in Washington

When a British secret service agent carrying a sensitive document on his way to Washington is found murdered and his documents he carried goes missing Sherlock Holmes and Watson is called to America to find the missing papers before it becomes an international incident, but it looks like he is not the only one looking for the missing documents.  Sherlock Holmes must track down missing microfilm before it falls into the hands of the Nazi agents.
Sherlock Holmes Faces Death

Murders are happening in an old mansion at Musgrave Manor, but there are strange tales of ghosts and legends about it and the people who live there.  The only clue Sherlock Holmes has is from an ancient riddle that has been pasted down thought the family, that these murders were not just random acts, and someone has a secret not even the family knows.  Before the night is done Holmes will solve the secret of the riddle, find hidden passage ways and find the murderer before he strikes again.


These are the same DVDs as previously reviewed via the link above, but I though they we more aged than our other writer, so you might want to try out the Blu-rays if you really want to get them, though this is a good starter set.
