Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes and the Spider Woman


Again, a great tale masterminded by Sherlock Holmes and the lovable Dr Watson. Excellent story as always. Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are incredible on screen together and I keep getting lost in their adventures. What wonderful story yelling without the blood and gore they need nowadays to keep you sucked in. Total classic...never a waste of time...just a gold ole timing enjoying a perfect movie.
