Movie Reviews

The Sherlock Holmes English TV series
James Allison | Oklahoma City, OK USA | 01/26/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My wife and I both love the Rathbone movie series on Holmes and Watson. For a different take you should try the Ron Howard and Marion Crawford series. Holmes is more likeable and Watson is the star of the show, but both are very engaging to watch. Certainly worth the few dollars for several nights of entertainment. If you love Rathbone and hate Jeremy Brett, you should like this series."
Better than Laserlight & Madacy releases!
Paul J. Mular | San Carlos, CA USA | 02/18/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This first volume in the Alpha/Gotham DVD series of the 1954-55 SHERLOCK HOLMES TV show is superior to the similar Laserlight & Madacy releases.
The episodes still seem to come from videotape recordings of the 16mm prints, but this version is the best copy so far, the noticable artifacting in the other releases is much less here.
The same 16mm films seem to be the source for all of the DVDs.

Until someone finds the original negatives to this French produced show (for U.S. television), this will do.

Sherlock Holmes fans who have not seen this series will quickly fall in love with it. While the half-hour format does not allow time for intricate stories, the puzzles are still fun to solve.

Roland Howard plays Sherlock almost as well as the great Basil Rathbone, and at times you may think you are watching the classic 1940's movies."
