"This is an excellent Sherlock Holmes collection. The sound is fantastic.
On so many remastered old films, words can sound jumbled up. Not this one. Basil Rathbone stars in, The Woman in Green, Terror By Night, Dressed to Kill with the lovable fumbling Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce-he was truly the one and only Dr. Watson). Arthur Wontner stars as SH in,
The Sign of Four, Triumph of SH and Murder at the Baskervilles.
Total running time: 6 hrs. and 54 min. at a very low, reasonable price.
This set is the best remastered one I have ever seen of any old film.

"The picture is so poor you can hardly make the characters out. There must be a decent piece of film left somewhere. I never even finished watching it."

"Just to let any prospective buyers know, this same company has re-released this set with an additional 3 films, upping the total to 9. You can see it at The Classic Sherlock Holmes Collection. The covers and title are almost exactly the same, and so is the price.
The different films are: SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE SECRET WEAPON, A STUDY IN SCARLET and THE SPECKLED BAND.
Just to be clear, the "Ian Flemming" listed on the cover is definitely not the same man who created James Bond.
These are all Public Domain films and have been released by numerous companies in various ways.
