Synopsis:
Super sleuth Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) investigates the deaths of two random individuals--including Dr. Watson's old friend Julian "Stinky" Emery (Edmond Breon)--found murdered after purchasing identical music boxes from an product house in London. Tracing the items back to a prison inmate who stole a series of printing plates from the Bank of England, Holmes begins to suspect the music boxes reveal a secret code to the hidden loot's whereabouts. It's a nailbiting race against time as Holmes tangles with a murderous gang led by the formidable Hilda Courtney (Patricia Morison) in his attempt to recover the last of the three boxes and decipher its hidden secrets. DRESSED TO KILL marks the 14th and final time Rathbone would star as the master detective. It is remarkable to me just how much these early Sherlock Holmes' movies influenced the later James Bond films. Ian Fleming makes reference to Sherlock in From Russia With Love, where the Russians refer to the English as having a Sherlock Holmes mentality with regard to James Bond within the British Secret Service. More remarkable to me is the trademark of - as Dr. Evil would put it - putting Sherlock Holmes in an easily escapable situation by planning an overly elaborate and exotic death and then not actually witnessing his demise but assuming that all goes to plan. I mean, this is Sherlock-Freaking-Holmes here, don't you think that he's going to think of a way out of that garage? At this stage in the game, without Professor Moriarty to chase around, Holmes is usually pitted against a femme fatale, as in the case of this movie. It is another pleasant mystery in which Holmes must crack a code and then rescue the MacGuffin before the bad guys do. I especially appreciate the nod to Samuel Johnson and Boswell, whose relationship was the precursor to Holmes and Watson.
