Sherlock Holmes: Prelude to Murder, also known as Dressed to Kill, is another installment of the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes series. In this edition, Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. John H. Watson (Nigel Bruce) must crack the code held inside three music boxes before a gang of thieves figure it out. The code, when cracked, will reveal the location of stolen Bank of England plates used for printing money. The boxes come to the attention of our sleuths because their owners begin turning up dead. Holmes and Watson discover the only thing tying the owners together was the ownership of these particular music boxes. Though not based on any particular original Sherlock Holmes story, this film does borrow elements from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "A Scandal in Bohemia." Still, Sherlock Holmes: Prelude to Murder is a classic Holmes whodunit that is also the last appearance of Rathbone and Bruce in their signature roles making this film a must see for Sherlock Holmes fans.moreless
