Movie Reviews

More episodes from the old TV series
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This disk contains the following episodes from the 1954-1955 TV series:Night Train Riddle
Mother Hubbard
Unlucky Gambler
Cunningham HeritageTwo of these episodes (Night Train Riddle and Cunningham Heritage) are also contained in the 20-episode, 5-DVD set just released by Madacy (ASIN B0001Z3TS4). If you're a fan of this TV series, you might want to consider getting that set instead of (or in addition to) this disk.I personally like this TV series. Ronald Howard is more personable than most others who have played Sherlock Holmes - more human - but still quirky and particular. In this series, he seems to enjoy being smarter than the other characters, but he does it with more of a sense of humor, rather then being obnoxious about it. Like any TV series, some episodes are better than others, but I found them all enjoyable."
Still better than the Laserlight & Madacy releases

"This second entry in the Alpha/Gotham DVD series of SHERLOCK HOLMES CLASSIC TV shows still has some episodes that look like they came from video tape, but they have much less compression artifacting than the Laserlight & Madacy DVDs.

#24 NIGHT TRAIN looks a little sharper on the Laserlight DVD, the artifacting on that release is distracting. The Madacy version has tearing & Artifacting. This Alpha/Gotham presentation looks a little softer (but not too soft), and has better compression DVD authoring. There is an annoying hair in the film projector for a minute or so in the first scene. Major DVD companies would have stopped the projector, cleaned it, and started over. In this case, someone blew it out as the film was running.

#10 MOTHER HUBBARD is currently not available elsewhere.

#37 UNLUCKY GAMBLER - I have not seen the Nostalgia Ventures edition of this, but Alpha/Gotham's copy is decent.

#01 CUNNINGHAM HERITAGE is also available from artifact ridden Madacy, these Alpha/Gotham copies look better. Cunningham Heritage should have been in the first set as it introduces Dr. Watson to Sherlock Holmes and was the first shown in the series.
