“Basil Rathbone's book about better written than most books by or about actors and is more intellectually vigorous...Sherlock Holmes fans will be much interested in his remarks on the character with whom he has been so closely identified.” –Library Journal “Quite naturally full of memories, full of names, full of glimpses of stars of stage and screen of yesterday and today.” –New York Times Book Review.

  • June 12, 2007 Did he play Sherlock Holmes?

    If you are looking for amusing anecdotes about Mr. Rathbone's days as Holmes, forget it. He barely alights on the subject. But for a bird's eye view of English and American theatre in the mid part of the last century, he offers up some fascinating character studies.
