    Baz stuns again as Sherlock,maybe not a thrill being tied down in serial,but all the films delight to see good friends Bruce & Rathbone,esp in WWII years.

    Always thought Universal cancelled the series-Rathbone opted not to continue films & radio SH,due to personal reasons,ending a long friendship with Nigel Bruce-cruel in my eyes,but I would never've married Ouida the liar,either.He was popular,in his mid-50s and probably severely limited on screen,not unsure he wouldn't have been in New York stage,too.Morison outstanding as a woman who almost bests the great Holmes,not to mention almost kills him,which was prob what Rathbone wanted,and glad didn't happen.The series had many great films,the best were made by Fox,but Rtahbone's health seemed to be in question for most of the Universal Holmes films-an affair which nearly lead to divorce with wife threatening to completely destroy him and his reputation for falling for a much younger woman.Rumor has it that was the reason,biggest one,their cooling the affair and him lamming out of Dodge being why the series ended-the radio show continued with anotheractor.Think Rathbone should've made up with Bruce after killing the friendship ties!

    I'm certain someone made an error in the credits regarding the song expert, Joe Cisto whom Holmes & Watson visit in a dive bar to learn the name of the tune used in the 3 music boxes. He's listed as Delos Jewkes, but I know this fine actor as Wallace Scott who played Petey, the cabbie pal of Bob Mitchum in Out Of The Past. In the Mitchum film he does a fine Brooklyn accent, but in Dress to Kill, he's all cockney, down to his shoes. It's a real tragedy that Patricia Morison didn't gain a higher profile like Gail Sondergaard who also played one of Sherlock Holmes finest female adversaries. What a stellar way to end their storied franchise w/ this fine effort from this entire ensemble of actors who often worked on the various 14 episodes of Sherlock Holmes.

  • Rathbone shines on to the end.....

    Surprisingly intelligent finish to this very uneven Universal series.Rathbone does a superb job as usual (though he probably hated every moment), Patricia Morison makes a wonderful villain and Nigel Bruce's Watson is less the bumbling idiot than in other entries. No Dennis Hoey, but they finally got Rathbone's hair right; in other films it curls annoyingly on the edges of his forehead, making Holmes seem foppish.Catch this; if you're a fan, you will be entertained.
