Digitally Restored In 35mm

The master detective Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and his faithful cohort Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) are back, preserved and digitally restored in 35mm to original condition 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.

A British secret service operative, carrying top-secret microfilm from England to Washington, disappears while traveling to his destination. Fearing for his safety just before his disappearance, he passes the microfilm, ingeniously hidden to another passenger on the train without her knowing. The agent is reported missing and Sherlock Holmes is called in to investigate.Filmed during World War II, Sherlock Holmes In Washington pits Holmes and Watson against Nazi enemy agents. The British government asks Holmes and Watson to go to Washington to recover the missing documents before they fall into the wrong hands, which would be disastrous for England and her allies. Holmes is up against time to piece together the clues and discover the whereabouts of the microfilm before it is too late.
