This week for getTV‘s lost treasures I am selecting not one but three films in a scheduled mini marathon:
SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE SECRET WEAPON (1942), SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE WOMAN IN GREEN (1945) and SHERLOCK HOLMES: DRESSED TO KILL (1946) all directed by Roy William Neill. These will air on getTV on Saturday September 6th, 2014 (starting at 7:15am and ending at noon est). What better way to spend a Saturday morning (hopefully it rains), than with Basil Rathbone as the incomparable Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Watson?
All three of these films are part of the Universal entries into the Holmes series, and for me great ‘B’ films that produce ‘A’ results. I love the character actors associated with Universal at the time as well, they add to the atmosphere of the productions. So grab your favorite cereal and be ready for back to back to back….Sherlock Holmes next Saturday on getTV.
Thanks for your time, and remember if you look hard enough you will always be able to find a lost treasure.
