Dressed to Kill (1946)
Holmes : Basil Rathbone
Watson : Nigel Bruce
This was the last of the fourteen movies starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as Sherlock Holmes and his loyal companion, Dr. Watson. I thought it was very well done. Sherlock really shows off some of his logical skills as he battles a group of counterfeiters. The music boxes mystery was a nice problem for Sherlock to solve.
Dr. Watson is again the perfect partner to Sherlock as he unwittingly supplies Sherlock with clues to solving the problems before them. This device, though not part of Conan Doyle's stories, was an integral part of the movies.
