Quotes

[first lines]
Inspector Gregson of Scotland Yard: [voiceover] I won't forget that morning, not if I live to be a hundred. I counted the men as they marched out of the yard; they'd hardly slept for weeks. We of the CID had slept even less, but the nightmare that kept us awake was all the same nightmare. That's why we weren't surprised when the commissioner asked us up to the conference room for a bit of a talk. He'd talked to us plenty, we knew that, but it didn't help any to know what was ahead of us.

A GREAT CLASSIC FILM FOR ALL GENERATIONS!
30 May 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a youngster viewing this film in the 1940's, I was always spellbound by the great acting of Basil Rathbone, (Sherlock Holmes),"The Comedy of Terrors,'64 along with Nigel Bruce (Dr. Watson),"Dressed to Kill",'46. In my opinion, they were a great team who portrayed exactly who Sherlock Holmes really was as a person and the goofy portrayal of Dr. Watson. It was a big treat to view all of the many pictures they performed in and this picture was one of their great accomplishments. I thought that Henry Daniell (Prof. Moriarty), "The Sun Also Rises",'57 was one of the best actors to show the evil that Holmes & Dr. Watson had to face. Henry Daniell played many roles as a Nazi in many WWII pictures and was a true demon of a person on the screen. These classic films of Sherlock Holmes will be enjoyed for many many generations to enjoy. These same actors played these same roles on RADIO and our imaginations went wild listening to them!
