Movie Info

Nine years before stepping into the role of Sherlock Holmes, Basil Rathbone essayed the character of S.S. Van Dyne's dilettante detective Philo Vance in The Bishop Murder Case. The murderer this time is a mysterious figure known only as "The Bishop." Plotting his killings in the systematic manner of a chess game, the Bishop tips off each of his crimes by sending the police cryptic messages in the form of nursery rhymes (his first victim, felled by an arrow, is referred to as "Cock Robin").

Stars a pre-Sherlock Holmes Basil Rathbone as Philo Vance. Overly melodramatic murder yarn with the cast throwing their voices like it was a stage production.

On the same level as Charlie Chan; pick your poison.
