Oribit Media less than optimal
Verified purchase
Sorry to agree with my colleague: I love the stories of Sherlock Holmes, but Orbit Media did not do a good job. The sound is often lousy, and as a foreign speaker at times hardly understandable, and the image quality is alike. All scratches and change marks preserved, something we dont like to see. Having worked in France and Germany I can say that there are French and German dubbed versions are available. They are missing on the CD, as a version for the HOH subtitles, which are particularly helpfull for non-native speakers.
Poor job by Orbit Media but great stories any way.

Well that is different.

Watching Basil Rathbone in colour is just plain weird, not bad just very different. Still love it.

So bad it couldn't be much worse!
Watching " The Woman in Green" I could have been forgiven for thinking I was seeing a pure, painstaking parody of a typical Hollywood literary adaption - but, no, it was apparently 'for real.' If, therefore, it is typical of the 14 SH films that Hollywood made, I can only wonder why the Conan Doyle estate didn't sue for gross misrepresentation of the original! I really only bought the DVD (a technically quite acceptable one, in black and white) to sample the Rathbone and Bruce "interpretations" of their respective characters and have to say that, with a sensible script, story line and direction, they were probably competent enough actors to have been effective in their roles. As it is, given the general "balderdash" level of the whole film, it's hardly worth bothering to comment. The film is a very good reminder of just how bad old Hollywood could be and given the level of popularity and admiration Conan Doyle's well-written tales have always enjoyed, you can only wonder why the films weren't booed off the screen, from the beginning! One can only conclude, therefore, that the audiences were not familiar with the originals.

How gratifying it is, therefore, to see the occasional re-run of one of the Jeremy Brett series, showing us how eminently dramatisable the stories are, given an intelligent attempt to make the most of the durable originals.
