Murder at the Baskervilles
is the 1937 Thomas Bentley black & white Sherlock Holmes mystery starring Arthur Wontener, Ian Flemming (not 007), Lyn Harding and John Turnbull telling the tale of Holmes’ vacation-gone-wrong involving some very shady characters and the attempt to “fix” the outcome of the world-famous Barchester Cup horse race.
The Sign of Four
is the 1932 Graham Cutts black & white Sherlock Holmes mystery starring Ian Hunter, Arthur Wontener, Ilsa Bevin and Graham Soutton and tells the tale of Jonathan Small, a convicted criminal parlaying hidden treasure information for his release, the betrayal of the agreement, and the vengeance he seeks on the family of the double-crosser.
The Woman in Green
is the original black & white version of the 1945 Roy William Neill mystery starring Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce and Hillary Brooke telling the tale of baffling murders of women who have had their fingers severed. This is a wild tale of deception, mutilation and murder that has Holmes and Watson stretching their collective powers of reasoning and evaluating opportunity and motive!
