The Classic Movie Collection:
Sherlock Holmes & The Secret Weapon

The second of Universal's 'modernized' SHERLOCK HOLMES films pits the Great Detective (Basil Rathbone) against Professor Moriarty (Lionel Atwill). Moriarty has now aligned himself with the Nazis and has dedicated himself to stealing a top-secret bombsight developed by expatriate European scientist Dr. Franz Tobel (William Post Jr.). Before being kidnapped by Moriarty's minions, Tobel was enterprising enough to disassemble his invention and distribute its components among several other patriotic scientists. Racing against the clock, Holmes and Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) try to stem the murders of Tobel's colleagues and prevent Moriarty from getting his mitts on the precious secret weapon. Based on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story THE ADVENTURE OF THE DANCING MEN, this Holmes case transplants the Victorian sleuth into the realm of WWII espionage and is also the first of the films to introduce Dennis Hoey as Scotland Yard detective Inspector Lestrade.
