SHERLOCK HOLMES COLLECTION Vol. 1 (Rarities) - 3 DVD Set

The DVD market is now flooded with reissues of Sherlock Holmes material. But here's something really special...First of all, none of the items packed into these three DVDs has ever before been released on VHS, let alone DVD. Everything in this package has been very nicely restored, obviously with great care. The whole experience this set offers hardcore Sherlockians is delightful. Going through this set is like opening up an old trunk in your grandmother's attic. The further down you dig, the better the stuff you find. HIGHLY recommended to fans of Sherlock Holmes and old and obscure movies and TV.

Disc 1 includes The Sleeping Cardinal (aka Sherlock Holmes' Fatal Hour, 1931) with Arthur Wontner, Lost in Limehouse (a 2-reel burlesque, 1933), and The Limejuice Mystery (a British 1-reel comedy, 1930).

Disc 2 includes The Sting of Death (an episode of the TV series The Elgin Hour, 1955) starring Boris Karloff as Mr. Mycroft, The Man Who Disappeared (a British TV episode with John Longden as Holmes, 1951), and the comedy shorts A Case of Hypnosis (1952) and The Strange Case of Hennessy (1933).

Disc 3 includes The Adventure of the Speckled Band (1949, with Alan Napier as Holmes), The Copper Beeches (1912 French film with Georges Treville as Holmes), The Man with the Twisted Lip (1921, with Eille Norwood as Holmes), The Case of the Screaming Bishop (1944 Columbia cartoon), and a bonus episode of Schlitz Playhouse of Stars called The General s Boots (1954, with Basil Rathbone).
