"Sherlock Holmes, the immortal character of fiction created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle [1859 to 1930], is ageless, invincible, and timeless.
In solving significant problems of the present day he remains--as ever--the supreme master of deductive reasoning."

The above printed introduction is found the in the first couple of movies in this fully restored collection of fourteen classic black and white movies (released in 2006) starring Basil Rathbone as the great detective with his loveable sidekick Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce). All movies were preserved by the UCLA film and television archive. They are presented on five discs with three movies per disc (except for the fifth disc that contains two movies).

The movies are presented in the order in which they were originally released. There titles are as follows:

(1) The Hound of the Baskervilles (a personal favorite)
(2) The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (a personal favorite)
(3) Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror (I liked this least)
(4) Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon
(5) Sherlock Holmes in Washington
(6) Sherlock Holmes Faces Death
(7) The Spider Woman
(8) The Scarlet Claw (a personal favorite)
(9) The Pearl of Death
(10) The House of Fear (a personal favorite)
(11) The Woman in Green
(12) Pursuit to Algiers
(13) Terror by Night
(14) Dressed to Kill (a personal favorite)

All the movies were released between 1939 and 1946. The advantage of having these movies presented in order is that the viewer can see how the series evolved over time.

For example, the printed introduction mentioned above was phased out early.

This collection of remade Holmes movies is outstanding. I could never have imagined that they could clean up those old movies and sound to this level. This is a technological marvel.
I have collected Basil Rathbone movies of Holmes over the years by copying from TV but they don't compare in any way to the quality of this DVD.
I heartily recommend this collection to anyone who is interested in seeing Basil Rathbone and Holmes at their very best.
It is worth every penny of the cost and more.

18 of 20 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: DVD
There have been only two long-running Sherlock Holmes actors who were really memorable: Jeremy Brett, and Basil Rathbone. And Rathbone is showcased at his best in "The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection," which collects all the excellent Sherlock movies (although the ones not cased on Arthur Conan Doyle's stories aren't quite as solid).

It opens with "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," which introduces us to the main characters. Sherlock Holmes (Rathbone) arrives at the courthouse a minute too late, and angrily watches his nemesis Professor Moriarty (George Zucco) go free because of a lack of evidence.

Sick of Holmes' investigations, Moriarty decides to utterly ruin Holmes with the most dastardly crime ever -- by distracting him with a bizarre threat to a young woman. Holmes becomes wrapped up in the potential murder, as the stressed-out police try to get him to pay attention to a threat to the Crown Jewels.

And after that, Holmes and his pal Watson (Nigel Bruce) solve all sorts of mysteries -- a string of bloody murders in a Canadian village, the theft of music-boxes, a stolen diamond on a train, the Hound of the Baskervilles on a lonely estate, World War II spies and kidnappings, a cursed pearl, the suicides of gamblers, castle murders, and a bizarre serial killing where the fingers are being removed.

Some of these Holmes movies are based on Doyle stories, and some aren't. Unsurprisingly, the ones that are based on Doyle stories ("Hound of the Baskervilles") tend to be a bit stronger than the ones that aren't ("Dressed to Kill"), and it's a little weird to see Holmes and Watson doing their patriotic duty in... World War II? Okay, whatever.

I love Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as Holmes and Watson, I don't think any other actor portrayed the as well as they did. This is a great set and there are films in there that I'd never seen before. Great to add to your movie collection.

This is the best collection of the definitive Sherlock Holmes movie series! Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce shine in these frugally made pictures. The Blue-ray quality is also much better than the old flickery cheapie sets that were spewn out during the early days of DVD movies.

nobody played Holmes and Watson like Rathbone and Bruce. The quintessential pairing in my opinion and I loved every minute of every film.
