Sherlock Holmes in Washington

After the murder of an agent who was on his way to the United States, Sherlock Holmes and dr. Watson (Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce) go to Washington D.C. to find the killer and the document the agent was carrying. The fifth film in the series changes locations in a fresh and amusing way, providing us with lighter moments where Watson tries American chewing gum. The two men in awe of the American democracy, the film does its part to strengthen the relationship between two allies in the war. Still, itā€™s one of the seriesā€™ weakest spy stories.

1943-U.S. 71 min. B/W. Directed byĀ Roy William Neill. Cast: Basil Rathbone (Sherlock Holmes), Nigel Bruce (John Watson), Marjorie Lord (Nancy Partridge), Henry Daniell, George Zucco, John Archer.

Trivia: Zucco and Daniell play Moriarty in other Sherlock Holmes films, but here theyā€™ve been cast as other villains. Followed by Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (1943).

    Nothing can match the sharpness of the mind of Sherlock. He is so sharp in noting every single detail within the blink of an eye.
