For many people, Basil Rathbone's portrayal of the iconic detective Sherlock
Holmes is the definitive screen version of Arthur Conan Doyle's much-loved
Sherlock Holmes and the Scarlet Claw (1944) - Strange deaths, and rumours of a mysterious phantom bring Holmes and Watson to a small village in Canada to solve yet another mystery.
Sherlock Holmes and the House Of Fear (1945) - Seven rich men retire to a Scottish castle and promptly begin to die in violent fashion. Each death is preceded by the delivery of orange pips to the next target. As all the likely victims are heavily insured, Sherlock Holmes is asked by the insurance companies to investigate.
Rathbone is the definitive Holmes, even if the stories have been set in the 20th century for some unaccountable reason. Good suspense yarns still.
