Sherlock Holmes: The Woman in Green [DVD] [1945]

Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and his partner Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) investigate the bizarre mutilation and murder of several beautiful women in this mystery, which gets a pleasing presentation for its debut DVD release. The Woman in Green (aka Sherlock Holmes and the Woman in Green) has been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1 and digitally mastered from restored 35 mm film elements. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo. No subtitles, multiple-language options, or bonus materials have been included for this edition, but the improved picture and sound quality of this release should still make it a desirable item for fans.

Overview

Synopsis

The Woman in Green
Based on Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Empty House, this "Sherlock Holmes" entry finds Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) trying to solve the case of the "Finger Murders". Several beautiful women have been found slain, all with their right forefingers severed from their hands. The police are prepared to write off the killings as the work of a madman, but Holmes deduces that there's a sane motive behind it all. Sure enough, the trail of evidence leads to Holmes' perennial nemesis Professor Moriarity (Henry Daniell), who is in league with lissome female criminal Lydia (Hillary Brooke). Though it isn't sporting to reveal Moriarity's nefarious scheme here, it can be noted that The Woman in Green comes to a nailbiting conclusion as a hypnotized Holmes wanders precariously along the ledge of a penthouse! ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
