Prelude to Murder '46 [Import]
The legendary Sherlock Holmes must apply his keen ear for music to help solve this thrilling case. A trio of music boxes contains the hidden secret to vast riches, and a group of criminals is willing to kill for them. When a friend of Dr. Watsons is the first victim, Holmes is on the case. This is the last of Basil Rathbones portrayals of the iconic Sherlock Holmes, and certainly one of the best.
The amazing colorization, created with a new cutting-edge digital technology, breathes new life into this classic film. Also included is the original black-and-white version, beautifully restored. This is the definitive DVD edition of Prelude to Murder.

But just because this may be one of the best colorizations of a classic film doesn't mean that you have to watch it that way, because Legend has included the cleaned-up black and white version on the same disc. This way, those who prefer to watch their films in the traditional, nostalgic way can do so, while those of us might enjoy a little added spice of color can have our druthers as well.
As a lifelong fan of Rathbone and Sherlock Holmes, all the these colourised dvds are a delight. the colours come across well, and the picture and sound is excellent.
It's simply snobbish to complain about these colourisations-it's not as if it's been done permenantly and you do have the option to watch in black and white.
Oh, and nothing is cut from these films in these editions.
For Rathbone fans-buy them! For fans of the films-buy them!
