Sherlock Holmes | Dressed to Kill | 1946

Dressed to Kill (also known as Prelude to Murder or Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Code in the UK), is the last of fourteen films starring Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Doctor Watson. Though not directly based on any of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmes stories, the film features several references to "A Scandal in Bohemia", with Holmes and Watson discussing the recent publication of the story in The Strand Magazine, and the villain of the film using the same trick on Watson that Holmes uses on Irene Adler in the story. The plot also bears some resemblance to "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons".

A set of cheap musicboxes that people are willing to kill for puts Sherlock Holmes on the case.

Starring: Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, Patricia Morison

Runtime: 1 hour, 29 minutes
