Basil Rathbone

The Dogcast: It’s Old Radio Time With “The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun in the form of “Sherlock Holmes.” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective has been featured in books, films, and television, but one of the most popular mediums used was that of old radio. The two episodes I feature here are from November of 1945 and feature the famous team of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as Holmes and Watson. They were probably the most popular duo of actors to play the roles, having essayed the roles on both film and radio. In honor of “Enola Holmes 2” enjoy some classic detective old radio on these newly cold evenings! So Sayeth The Kendog!

Sherlock Holmes – The Gunpowder Plot – 11/5/1945
