Till his dying day, Basil Rathbone never fully recovered from his loss. The actor played every major character from Shakespeare during his long stage career.

I have not since been called upon to play a tree. We stand next to it while we drink our tea. It's commonplace and ordinary. People who had lives and tried to hold on to them and didn't, and now slump and stare and melt slowly to nothing.
You meet their eyes, or what used to be their eyes and you feel ashamed. And now Johnny is one of them. Sidney Lanfield.
The Hound of the Baskervilles — Holmes and Watson are consulted about the arrival in England of Sir Henry Baskerville, the last of the Baskervilles, heir to the family estate on Dartmoor , following the death of Sir Henry's uncle.
A local myth surrounds the Baskervilles that a vicious hound stalks the descendants of the family. Holmes sends Watson to Baskerville Hall while he assumes the disguise of a peddler.
Holmes reveals his identity to Watson and the two witness the death of an escaped convict, killed by a large hound. Holmes and Watson declare the case closed and claim that they are leaving Baskerville Hall; they return to the moor that night and kill the dog as it attacks Sir Henry.
Holmes then unmasks the killer as John Stapleton, who was a Baskerville and hoped to claim the fortune and title for himself. Alfred L. After Professor Moriarty is acquitted for murder, Holmes and Watson are visited by Ann Brandon, who tells the detectives that her brother Lloyd has received a strange note—a drawing of a man with an albatross hanging around his neck—identical to one received by her father just before his murder ten years previously: her brother is killed later that day.
Holmes believes an attempt will be made on Ann's life and he disguises himself as a music hall entertainer for a garden party, where he captures her assailant.
The assassin is Gabriel Mateo, out for revenge on the Brandons for the murder of his father by Ann's father in a dispute over ownership of their South American mine; Mateo reveals that it was Moriarty who urged him to seek revenge.
Holmes realises Moriarty was using Ann's attempted murder as a distraction from his real crime: an attempt to steal the Crown Jewels. Holmes goes to the Tower of London where Moriarty is masquerading as a policeman.
The pair struggle, and Moriarty falls, presumably to his death. John Rawlins. During the Second World War, Holmes is consulted by the British Inner Council to capture a Nazi agent who broadcasts under the name the "Voice of Terror", and who appears to be running a sabotage ring in England.
After Gavin, one of his underworld contacts, is killed on his doorstep, Holmes convinces Kitty—Gavin's wife—to find out the meaning of a clue Gavin had uncovered.
She does so, and manages to inveigle her way into the house of Meade, the main Nazi agent in the ring. After being given a tip off from Kitty, Holmes takes the Inner Council to an abandoned church on the coast of southern England, where they thwart a German invasion.
Holmes then uncovers the mole in the council, Sir Evan Barham, head of the council and the German spy Heinrich von Bork, who had been posing as Barham for the previous twenty years.
Roy William Neill. A disguised Holmes helps Swiss scientist Dr Tobel to escape from Gestapo kidnappers and flee to England with his revolutionary bombsight.
Without telling Holmes or Watson, Tobel splits his bombsight into four parts and leaves a part each with four Swiss scientists also living in London.
Shortly afterwards, he is kidnapped by Professor Moriarty , who is working with the Nazis; a coded note giving details of the scientists that was left for Holmes was also taken by Moriarty.
Holmes discovers tracings of the note and decodes it, but three of the scientists had already been killed. Holmes takes the place of the fourth scientist and allows himself to be kidnapped by Moriarty's men.
Moriarty tries to kill Holmes by exsanguination , but Watson and Inspector Lestrade rescue the detective.
As Moriarty tries to escape he falls through a trapdoor, seemingly to his death. A British courier is carrying top secret papers that he had put onto microfilm and inserted into a matchbook ; realising he is being pursued by Nazi agents, he drops the matches into a handbag of the socialite Nancy Partridge, a fellow passenger.
He is subsequently kidnapped and killed and Holmes is instructed to find his killers and the missing document. On his arrival in Washington, Holmes soon realises that Partridge has the document.
The Nazi agents, led by William Easter, have also come to the same conclusion and kidnapped her.
Holmes tracks her down to an antique shop and meets the owner, whom he recognises as a German agent from the First World War.
Holmes, Watson and the police subsequently round up Easter and the gang, and obtain the microfilmed documents. Watson is the doctor in charge of an army hospital at Musgrave Manor in Northumberland; when his assistant, Dr.
Bob Sexton, is attacked, Watson asks Holmes for help. On their arrival they find the body of Geoffrey Musgrave, head of the family.
The following day Geoffrey's young sister Sally performs the "Musgrave Ritual", which passes the house and estate to her elder brother Phillip.
Holmes questions the butler, Alfred Brunton, who is subsequently dismissed for drunkenness. The next day Phillip Musgrave is murdered and Inspector Lestrade suspects the butler for the crime, although the butler is now missing.
Holmes realises that the key to the mystery may be in the text of the Musgrave Ritual, which contains oblique references to chess moves.
Holmes decodes the ritual, using the staff and patients of the house as chess pieces to play a game on the chequered floor of the main hall.
He deduces that the ritual refers to a cellar below the hall: on examining the area he finds the body of the missing butler.
Holmes poses as the Butler's corpse, and tricks Sexton into unveiling himself as the murderer. Holmes explains that Sexton had found a land grant and was murdering the family in order to gain the benefits.
A series of similar suicides take place in London while Holmes is on holiday in Scotland; shortly after complaining to Watson about his health, Holmes collapses into a ravine and is missing, presumed dead.
In reality Holmes has faked his own death to try and track down the gang behind what he believes are murders, conducted by a "female Moriarty".
Seeing that the common connection between the deaths is a life insurance scheme, Holmes disguises himself as Raghni Singh, an Indian officer who has lost heavily on the gambling tables and is in disgrace: he is approached by Adrea Spedding, the leader of the gang, who tells him that he can borrow money using his insurance policy.
She sees through Holmes's disguise and attempts to kill him using a poisonous spider whose venom causes such excruciating pain that the victims kill themselves.
Holmes and Watson visit the leading arachnologist Matthew Ordway to see who has purchased the spiders recently, but Holmes deduces that the man is an imposter.
The imposter escapes and Holmes and Watson find Ordway's body in the house. They trace the villains to a fairground where, despite an attempt on Holmes's life, the gang are arrested.
Following the death of Lady Lillian Penrose in a small Canadian village, Holmes investigates, despite the locals blaming the murder on a glowing, murderous phantom.
Holmes establishes that Lady Penrose was Lillian Gentry, a former actress who had left acting after one of her fellow actors committed a murder.
Further investigation and deduction from Holmes shows that an ex-judge also lives in the town: he had overseen the case of the murderer.
The local hotel owner was a former prison guard who also knew the killer. After the judge and hotel owner's daughter are also killed, Holmes sets a trap for the murderer, who had been living in the village for the previous two years disguised as a postman.
The murderer also tries to kill Holmes, but fails, before running off into the fog, where the hotel owner finds and kills him in revenge.
