House of Fear (Universal)Opened at the RKO Palace theatre on Thursday, March 22, 1945, as the bottom-half of a double-bill featuring Abbott and Costello in "Here Come the Co-eds." Review: Chicago Tribune--"Basil Rathbone, looking like an elegant bloodhound and clipping his words so short that understanding him is very often not a bit elemental, my dear Watson, is an extremely busy man in 'The House of Fear.' . . . The film was taken from Arthur Conan Doyle's 'Adventures of the Five Orange Pips.' . . . .Sherlock arrives at Drearcliff, and although Dr. Watson gets batted about a bit, the sleuth unravels the problem with his customary aplomb. . . . The entire cast is competent, the story an interesting one, with the result that the film is mildly engrossing in an adult fashion. "[Tues., Mar. 27, '45]
