Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror
Holmes and Watson are called in to help solve a mystery. A person who says he is broadcasting from a city in Germany is teasing the English with his warnings of disaster which often come true during the broadcast.
Basil Rathbone is great as the detective figures out what’s going on over the blustering and cocky chatter that is typical of the British politician .
The film is a bit dated, since it is occurring during World War II when the Nazi threat was real and invasion was a possibility. Now it’s interest is historical. The final villain is not that much of a surprise, a person gets shot for betraying Nazi’s and Watson says he knew who the bad guy was all along.
Love these old Black & White shows with their fancy Universal logos and cool music interludes.
Best Scene: When Holmes is confronted by the Nazi spies and he lets them escape, to the shock of the council, which really was a puppet group, to be honest.
There are better Basil Rathbone films of this time (Hound of the Baskervilles!) but this one will do.
