Lee and Daniel start an extended series looking into film adaptations of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. First up, they check out two examples from the 14-film series, starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, that one could argue really captured the imagination of the general movie-going public and cemented Holmes and his stories as a solid well to keep going back to for film adaptation ever since. The two films are "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1939) & "The Pearl of Death" (1944). There's talk of Holmes being a dickhead; the smashing of fine china; Rondo Hatton; the new Dark Crystal series on Netflix; and listener comments are responded to.
