The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes-1939, directed by Alfred Werker, starring Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, and George Zucco

He says-  The master sleuth faces one of his greatest challenges when the nefarious Professor Moriarty (Zucco) plots to steal the Crown Jewels.  The second and last of Fox's excellent Rathbone-Bruce period pieces which predated Universal's entertaining modern series. 3 and a half stars

I say-  I was surprised how much I enjoyed this movie.  Great mystery and great acting, and wasn't terribly dark for black and white.  3 stars.
