Meet the Author

When Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce were chosen to play Holmes and Watson in the 1939 film The Hound of the Baskervilles, no one realized that they would be forever linked with the characters of the great detective and his loyal friend. The immediate success of the film led to their being chosen to portray Holmes and Watson on the radio for 8 years in 213 episodes of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

    A MUST for any Baker Street Irregular or an Oldtime radio fan

    These are original Sherlock Holmes stories, written for the radio, that were inspired from smaller events that occured in the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories. And who can resist Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce? Who indeed! The settings for all of the stories take place during the Victorian and Edwardian periods.

    Great Audio tape

    This was great. It's original recordings from the Sherlock Holmes radio program in the 1940s. It actually has the original cheesy ads from the 40s, along with requests for the audience to buy war bonds and go into the army, etc. etc. The stories themselves are great - pefect for car drives or rainy days. If you like Sherlock Holmes or mysteries you'll like this.
