The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce make their second screen appearances as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in this film. Played with relish by George Zucco, Moriarty plots to steal the Crown Jewels and to confound Holmes by obliging the Great Detective to be in two places at once.
