Rather tedious. And implausible--why would the threatened spy deem putting the microfiche in some anonymous bimbo's handbag better than any other place within reach? Also the director's a bit heavy-handed with the tantalizing availability/ubiquity of the matchbook (which also leads us to the non-stop smoking--I swear, it started to look like a relay team after a while). However, the final confrontation between Rathbone and George Zucco is pretty good.

One of the best Sherlock movies. Except for the awkward bits of propaganda, it contains few of the flaws apparent in some of the other films. Watson isn't nearly as idiotic as usual, mysteries are doled out generously (if perhaps resolved a bit too quickly), and it's delightfully suspenseful. The Macguffin is casually passed around a party in a scene that's downright Hitchcockian. There's even a few genuinely funny moments, that thankfully don't involve Watson being an imbecile. Quite fun.

Not much suspense, little mystery, and not very clever. Zucco is a complete waste with little to say or do (unlike in '39). There is some clever humor however and Nigel Bruce gets the best out of it overall. Maybe if they spent more time on a plot than praising Washington D.C. this would be worth more than a DVR'ing.

There isn't a mystery. In fact, there isn't anything unpredictable about the story at all.- Rathbone is great, but given little to actually do. This is the first of these old Sherlock Holmes films I've seen so while Nigel Bruce has some funny lines, I was mostly confused as to why he was portrayed as being so, so, so stupid.

Not bad would have been better without the almost sickening propaganda.
