This one-of-a-kind collection features the dozen Holmes movies digitally restored and remastered by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. South African-born British actor Basil Rathbone was a star of such classics as The Adventures of Robin Hood, David Copperfield and Romeo and Juliet before achieving screen immortality playing Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant Holmes, beginning with The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in 1939. Those instant hits led to 12 more mind-bending mysteries over the next seven years, each also starring Nigel Bruce (Alfred Hitchcock's Suspicion) as Holmes' loyal, if often befuddled, friend Dr. Watson. While several of the Rathbone movies were based on Conan Doyle's original stories, others pitted Holmes against contemporary villains, including the Nazis. But Rathbone's personification of literature's most famous crime solver remained a constant source of wonder and delight throughout the series.
