Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
This box set collects five classic Sherlock Holmes tales, starring Jeremy Brett as the famed sleuth and Edward Hardwicke as his endearing sidekick, Dr. Watson. The Hound of the Baskervilles centers around a horrible curse visited upon the Baskerville family in the form of a hellhound. The Master Blackmailer features Holmes's first-ever romantic dalliance, as he goes undercover as a plumber to take on the blackmailer Charles Augustus Milverton (Robert Hardy). The disappearance of the wealthy fiancée of Lord Robert St. Simon is the focus of The Eligible Bachelor, and Holmes (played by an ailing Brett), is called upon to find the missing woman. The Last Vampyre represents a significant departure from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original, "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire," and finds Holmes using his storied intellect to figure out the sudden, irrational rise in fears of bloodsucking. The Sign of Four recalls the familiar tale of the theft of the Agra treasure and is considered almost unanimously by critics to be one of Brett's best performances as the deerstalker-wearing detective.

Sherlock Holmes Feature Film Collection 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

After viewing the Adventures and Return of Sherlock Holmes, I purchased this collection. I am happy to report that each film is a winner. Brett is touching in the Master Blackmailer as the plumber/romantic suitor. In the Sign of Four, he is at the top of his game. The remaining films are all noteworthy and highly recommended. If you can only choose one dvd to begin your collection..this is the one I suggest you pick.

I realize I was not yet alive when Basil Rathbone took on the role of Sherlock Holmes and became an instant favorite among the masses of Doyle Fans... but I have to say that Jeremy Brett is the ONLY Sherlock Holmes as far as I am concerned. I will watch these performances over and over, and delight in them each and every time.
