"This was the last entry in the series and while not one of the best, it was still an enjoyable entry. As usual, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce gave excellent performances. At this point in the series Rathbone was tired of his character role and wanted to move on. Patricia Morison who played Hilda Courtney was a very good antagonist of Holmes. The MPI release is much more superior than some of the other poor releases that have been going around for years."
One of the best plots

"I have all the Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce Sherlock Holmes' movies. This is one of the best and most interesting of them all. The use of the music boxes and the tunes are ingenious and the solving of the mystery is great. Enjoy and listen carefully and see if you can solve this before they do!!!"

"Of the fourteen Sherlock Holmes mysteries starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, three are in the "public domain," meaning the copyrights have elapsed. As a result, numerous distributors offer varying-quality copies of SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE SECRET WEAPON (1942), THE WOMAN IN GREEN (1945), and DRESSED TO KILL (1946). This Digiview edition of DRESSED TO KILL, the final entry in the Rathbone-Bruce series, is typical of the public domain lot: the picture quality is fair but watchable, with a few transitional fades missing (TV print?) and a replaced "End" title. Nevertheless, it's always a pleasure to watch Rathbone and Bruce in action, even if DRESSED TO KILL is a second-echelon Holmes effort.
Serious collectors will want to get MPI Home Video's beautiful restorations of the entire Rathbone-Bruce series. However, for casual viewers who can't resist an impulse buy (I got it for $1 at Wal-Mart), this Digiview cheapie is okay for the price.
