  • Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (Universal)

    Opened in Chicago on Friday, October 29, 1943, at the Oriental theatre, Randolph near State; an ad reads: "Screen--1st Showing--The Mystery Wizards at their best in their Newest Murder Masterpiece!"; the stage show starred "The Pistol Packin Mama Sensation," Al Dexter and His Texas Troopers. Review: Chicago Tribune--"Let me sell you a good old fashioned detective story thriller this morning! 'Old fashioned,' really, only in a manner of speaking, for this piece brings Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous Baker street sleuth up to date--as recent Holmes pictures have been doing. . . The action keeps you interested, amused, and guessing. Mr. Holmes is unusually peppy. Probably has been taking his vitamins. . . . Basil Rathbone sees to it that his every screen moment counts. He plays straighter than usual not so much tongue-in-the-cheek stuff and the picture ends on an earnestly delivered homily from him to Watson. Good Stuff!" [Sat., Oct. 30, '43, p. 17] Edit
