Sherlock Holmes - Dressed to Kill
Prelude to Murder is the last of the many Sherlock Holmes adaptations that starred Basil Rathbone as the observant and logical private detective alongside Nigel Bruce as his more outgoing partner, Dr. Watson. The story concerns printing plates swiped from the Bank of England as well as a collection of music boxes. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of the classic movies pairing suave gaunt Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and plump Nigel Bruce as his bumbling Boswell, Dr. Watson."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"...patched together from hand-me-down remnants. Director Roy William Neill and the writers seem to be just going through the motions while waiting for that final smack from the clapboard. Rathbone delivers a magnetic performance to the bitter end, though."
‑ Mark Bourne, DVDJournal.com
"Final entry in the Rathbone series has a lot of style."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"This is another enjoyable well-paced and acted mystery thriller in the series with the usual pleasant banter between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The Rathbone/Bruce series of Sherlock Holmes films didn't exactly limp to a close, but it didn't go out on a high note either."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
