Roy William Neill
GENRE:
Mystery
In "Dressed to Kill," three seemingly ordinary music boxes arrive at a London auction house from Dartmoor prison, where inmates construct crafts for income. Sold to three different customers, the boxes soon generate a most sinister interest. When one of the buyers, a friend of Dr. John Watson (Nigel Bruce) is murdered and his box taken, Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) quickly involves himself in the case. The last of fourteen films starring Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Watson, "Dressed to Kill" is a superb ending to the Rathbone/Bruce series of adventures! (BW)
