Rating: 2/5 -- The film is marred by glacial pacing, its own silly premise, and a snowballing series of absurdities. Full Review

Rating: B- -- Though the plot-line was stale and this is one of the poorer ones in the series, the Rathbone-Bruce team are always good enough to make things entertaining. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

The master detective Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and his faithful cohort are back, restored in 35mm 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.

Pursuit to Algiers (1945) begins as Holmes and Watson learn that the King of a Ravenia has been assassinated and his son Nikolas is now a marked man. The great detective and his comrade are pressed into service to protect the life of the soon-to-be crowned monarch.

The detective and the good doctor take to the sea in order to safeguard the young heir on his journey from London back to his homeland and throne.

The soon-to-be king poses as Dr. Watson's nephew while a number of the SS Friesland's passengers appear eccentric, suspicious and downright sinister. The ship makes an unexpected stop in Lisbon and Holmes is presented with yet three more mysterious passengers.

Product Description:

With fear drifting out of the fog and terror lurking in every port, master sleuth Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and his trusty assistant Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) are instructed to escort soon-to-be-king Nikolas back home to Algiers after the assassination of his father. Travelling aboard a transatlantic oceanliner with Nikolas disguised as Watson's nephew, Holmes must keep close watch on his young charge as onboard assassins attempt to kidnap the young monarch and subvert the throne.
