Sherlock Holmes Faces Death

This is one of the 12 original Sherlock Holmes Movies staring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce filmed at Universal Studios and Masterfully Restored. In the collection by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the story was called "The Musgrave Ritual". In my opinion, this set of 12 classic movies are iconic and are the best of the Sherlock Holmes movies produced. I particularly enjoyed this one along with "The Scarlet Claw", and "The House of Fear".
