Movie Reviews

Tricky marketing -- this is for rabid Holmes fans only!
Patrick W. Crabtree | Lucasville, OH USA | 02/28/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"As has been mentioned, only three of these films star Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, so beware the impression that you get from the cover! The three Rathbone films that you DO get are the ones which have fallen into public domain and anyone may copy them.

I own all these films/episodes on various discs and if you're a HUGE Holmes fan, then this is probably an okay deal; however, the local Family Dollar stores and Big Lots offer most of these films on DVD at an even better price and in far superior assemblages. For example, I got the entire Ron Howard series on multiple discs in a single package at Big Lots for $6 bucks.

Also, all the Basil Rathbone films featured here are widely available for $1 per copy, each. Save-a-Lot stores offer all three in flat cardboard packaging.

Buyers should also beware that these are not the best prints available of the Rathbone films. For top clarity, get the UCLA film lab ones which were generated from pretty pristine 35mm prints of the original films. They are VERY good quality.

Finally, when you're out in search of these films, watch out that you don't buy "colorized" Rathbone films -- the pastel coloration is garish and renders these treasures into something quite fuzzy-looking and otherwise inferior."

"Cover shows Basil Rathbone but only one of the three disks are Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce movies. The others are older, sometimes poor quality, and greatly altered "versions" of Conan Doyle's stories."
An "elementary" Holmes collection

"SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE'S SHERLOCK HOLMES includes nine public domain mysteries from the 1930s and '40s. There's also an extra item on each of this set's three DVDs.

MYSTERY CLASSICS 50 MOVIE PACK COLLECTION is a related DVD collection of budget-priced vintage who-dun-its. Besides Holmes, other cinematic series featured here are Bulldog Drummond, Mr. Moto, Dick Tracy and Mr. Wong.

Don't purchase this one!

"Don't buy this one, especially if you are a Basil fan as I am. Only one of the disks contains Rathbone and Bruce, and these episodes are very poor quality. I am a Holmes fan and have several duplicate DVD from other sources. I have examined the video quality of this set against other sets I have and these were substantially much poorer quality. I placed this DVD box set in my "give away" pile!"
