Description by OLDIES.com:

The master detective Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and his faithful cohort are back, preserved and digitally restored in 35mm to original condition by the UCLA Film and Television Archive. This newly restored version of the classic film includes the period war bond tag, studio logo and credits from its original theatrical release. Filled with ominous shadows and interesting camera angles, the visual beauty of the film in 35mm is stunning.

Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (1943) is an inriguing mystery based upon Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Musgrave Ritual." Dr. Watson, tending recuperating housed at centuries-old Musgrave Manor, summons Sherlock Holmes to investiage strange happenings. What follows is a bizarre series of events, including murders, secret passages, a game of chess and a mysterious family ritual.

Even Inspector Lestrade is on hand, as well as lovely Hillary Brooke as Sally Musgrave. But only Sherlock Holmes, in a race against time and a desperate killer, can decipher the ancient riddle and uncover the treasure it hides.

Product Description:

After Phillip and Geoffrey Musgrave are found murdered, the sole heir of the estate reads the ceremonial "Musgrave Ritual" which Sherlock Holmes believes contains the motive to the crime. Using the manor's main hall floor as a giant chessboard and people as chess pieces, the "Ritual" eventually leads Holmes to more than he bargained for. Based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's THE MUSGRAVE RITUAL, this classic film adaptation pairs the definitive Holmes and Watson, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.
