Sherlock Holmes - Dressed to Kill (Prelude to Murder)
Based on the prolific Sir Arthur Conan Doyle mysteries, Sherlock Holmes is on the job again. This time the inmate of a British prison has incorporated stolen Bank of England engraving plates into a series of music boxes he has made and multiple criminals are out to find them. Holmes must be first. It's a weak, thin plot for the final of the Holmes/Watson series but it is still a joy to see Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce working off one another. ~ Tana Hobart, 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
