Description by OLDIES.com:
Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) find themselves amidst murder and thievery on a speeding train from London to Edinburgh. The master sleuths are hired by wealthy Lady Margaret Carstairs to guard the precious "The Star of Rhodesia" diamond. On board, the infamous criminal Colonel Sebastian Moran, a master of disguise, may be posing as any one of the train's passengers. When a Carstairs family member is murdered in his compartment, Holmes sets out to find the murderer and save the diamond. The penultimate entry in Universal Sherlock Holmes series, Terror By Night takes place almost entirely on board a train. Suspicious characters and intrigue lie within each coach, and at every turn of this suspenseful thriller.
Master sleuth Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) is hired by the wealthy widow Lady Margaret (Mary Forbes) and her son Roland Carstairs (Geoffrey Steele) to prevent the theft of an enormous diamond known as the "Star of Rhodesia." Traveling by train from London to Edinburgh, Holmes guards the priceless jewel with the help of Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) and Inspector Lestrade (Dennis Hoey). But when the diamond disappears and Roland is found murdered, Holmes must deduce the murderer's identity from among the speeding train's many suspicious passengers, including Dr. Watson's old friend Major Duncan-Bleek (Alan Mowbray). Dripping with atmosphere and claustrophobic suspense, TERROR BY NIGHT is a true classic in the pantheon of Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
