Unless you're intrigued by the notion of a toy plane crashing into Basil Rathbone's right eye, this 1943 poster offers little of interest. But the film is actually pretty good. Unlike the previous four, this one is not based on any Conan Doyle story. Holmes, Watson and the bad guys, played by George Zucco and Henry Daniell, are all chasing after a secret war document on a piece of microfilm. Zucco, you may recall, played Professor Moriarty earlier in the series, and Daniell would portray him later.
The Archive's Sherlock Holmes Poster Gallery, featuring some far better artwork, is now open for further viewing.
