Double feature starring Basil Rathbone as detective Sherlock Holmes. In 'Sherlock Holmes in Washington' (1943), Holmes and Doctor Watson (Nigel Bruce) go to Washington DC in search of some missing micro-film which must not, on any account, fall into the wrong hands: ie, the Nazis. The film is notably cheeky for its WW2 propaganda - and Watson's fixation with American bubblegum. In 'Sherlock Holmes Faces Death' (1943), Holmes and Watson are hot on the heels of a murderer who has killed a number of retired officers in their retirement home. They check in to the mansion-like home with its mysterious clock-tower, underground crypt and incredible human chess-board and do their best to solve the murders.
