Sherlock Holmes/ Racket Squad - 2 Disc Collection


Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes comes bursting to life int his popular series. Ronald Howard, who plays Sherlock, is the son of Leslie Howard of "Gone with the Wind." This complete series was filmed in France with an American cast. H. Marion Crawford plays Watson and Archie Duncan is Inspector Lestrade. Keep an eye peeled for Duncan in other roles when Lestrade is off screen. Brilliant deductions, a deerstalker hat and the calabash pipe make for enjoyable viewing!
THE BELLIGERENT GHOST. While walking home, Watson finds a troubled man and helps him. But the man dies by the time he gets to his flat. Trying to settle his nerves, Watson visits the local pub and upon leaving, claims he was struck in the eye by the dead man, a certain Albert Higgins, curator of a local museum. In classic form, Sherlock investigates what appears to be a ghost and again demonstrates to Scotland Yard and all concerned that he is"the" master detective, magnifying glass and all.
THE CARELESS SUFFRAGETTE. A young woman activist, played by Doreen Meridith, is naively swayed by a women's rights group led by a domineering woman. The group is, not unexpectedly for the time, largely ignored and decides to make a statement by hiring an anarchist to build a bomb. The scheme turns tragic and unveils some truths about the group's leader. Holmes is faced with the difficult task of uncovering the unlikely suspect behind the plot.
THE UNLUCKY GAMBLER. An 11 year old boy comes to Baker Street and hires Holmes to find his father, who has been missing for over a week. By observing the boy and hearing his jargon, Holmes deduces his father to be a gambler. An interesting chase of Jack Driscoll, the "Collector," ensues. A personal interest in the boy and the case results and a sensitive Holmes makes every effort to protect the father and son.
