This collection of Sherlock Holmes movies included 5 different stars portraying Mr. Holmes. I enjoyed seeing each of them in my quest to determine my favorite Sherlock Holmes portrayal - to date it remains Jeremy Brett for the television series and Robert Downey Jr. for the movies, although Benedict Cumberbatch does an awesome job (I'm not real sure where I would place the Sherlock series as it is a television series but each episode is more the length of a movie). Ronald Howard also does a great job, but Jeremy Brett with his realistic portrayal of a cocaine addict is hard to top. Ronald Howard is one of the 5 stars included in this set of Black and White shows. In my opinion for being transferred to dvd, the quality of the picture and the sound is excellent.
