To an entire generation of fans, Basil Rathbone was Sherlock Holmes. On the big screen and on radio, Rathbone brought the master detective of Baker Street to life and left a lasting impression on the character. He became closely identified with the role - eventually to the point where he wanted to distance himself from Holmes’ deerstalker. We’ll hear Rathbone as Holmes in “The Manor House Case” (originally broadcast on Mutual on October 15, 1945) and as himself in the quirky mystery series Tales of Fatima in a story called “A Much Expected Murder” (originally aired on CBS on May 21, 1949).
