Description
For many of a certain age, Basil Rathbone was the quintessential Sherlock Holmes. Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson may have been a bit too bumbling for some tastes, but the duo made 11 more Holmes films after 1939's The Hound of the Baskervilles. When Sir Charles Baskerville is killed outside of his ancestral hall, his good friend Dr. Mortimer (Lionel Atwill) fears that the family's curse has struck again and implores Holmes to investigate before another Baskerville succumbs to it. Pursuit to Algiers (1945) begins as Holmes and Watson learn that the King of Ravenia has been assassinated and that his son is a marked man. The great detective and his comrade are pressed into service to protect the life of the soon-to-be crowned monarch.

"Together, these dozen thrillers constitute what may be the greatest Hollywood B-movie series of all time, thanks to Rathbone's arrogant, almost snobby Holmes, Nigel Bruce's lovable if not according-to-Doyle Dr. Watson, the silky guest villainy of the likes of George Zucco, Lionel Atwill, Henry Daniell and Gale 'Spider Woman' Sondergaard, and the underrated skills of Roy William Neill, who produced and directed most of the movies, investing them with the chiaroscuro of a film noir and the spookiness of a horror movie."—Oakland Tribune
