The Art of Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) Part 1

I'm enough of a Sherlock Holmes fanatic that I enjoy watching just about anyone in the role. But for me, only one actor will ever be Sherlock Holmes, and that's Basil Rathbone. He's like Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan. Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger. Guy Williams as Zorro. Sean Connery as Bond. And as you may have guessed, I love old movie posters. So here begins a retrospective of great posters from the Rathbone-Bruce film series. Watch for The Hound Part 2 coming soon to your local Almanack.
