to the Golden Age
of Radio and the Best
in Classic Mystery
From 1939 to 1946 Americans gathered around their radio to listen to
The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes --
featuring Basil Rathbone as the high strung crime solver and Nigel Bruce as his phlegmatic assistant, Dr. Watson.
Witty, fast-paced and always surprising, these great radio plays, written by the prolific writing team of Anthony Bouchere and Denis Green, are as fresh today as they were then.
The latest audio technology was employed to bring the best audio quality and fidelity to the original performances, which feature nostalgic war-time announcements, original commercials and radio narration.

"The game's afoot!" And so it is, as Holmes and Watson plunge into intrigue and danger. These rare performances are prime Holmes, as the actors who played them best--Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce--appear at Paramount Studios in Hollywood before a live audience. Complete with misspoken lines, the occasional stutter, and a smarmy host, this collection is a real treat. The acting is top-notch, the writing brisk and witty. Interlaced with inside stories by surviving members and spouses, this collection is a must for mystery and radio theater fans.
