About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for SHERLOCK HOLMES IN WASHINGTON (1943).


Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, Marjorie Lord, Henry Daniell, George Zucco, John Archer, dir: Roy William Neill; Universal. In this entry in the long running series of films, it was wartime, and so the theme reflected that. Holmes and Watson travel from London to Washington, D.C. after a British diplomat carrying secret government documents is kidnapped by the Nazis, though not before he is able to slip microfilm of the documents inside a matchbox into the purse of a woman on the plane. The woman is abducted and Holmes is on the quest to recover those documents. Following the Nazi spies to their headquarters in a Washington, D.C. antique shop, Holmes attempts to rescue Nancy Partridge (Marjorie Lord) -- the woman who has been given the documents on microfilm -- and is captured himself.

Book Description Universal Studios, Burbank, California, 1943. Original Wraps. Book Condition: Very Good. Original Manuscript. This unique studio archive consists of FOUR original studio scripts: an original writer's preliminary ribbon typescript, a heavily corrected official first draft, a revised shooting script, and the final post-production dialogue continuity script, all stamped with the film's production number (7074). In short, the entire creative writing arc of this film from soup to nuts, and a treasure trove of primary material relating to the third of Universal's most endearing and enduring film series of the 1940s starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. 1. Dated April 8th, 1942, Bertram Millhauser's brad-bound complete 116pp original first draft ribbon-copy typescript (on watermarked paper) with the temporary title: "Sherlock Holmes #3" noted on the typically bland WW2 Universal Studio covers. In Very Good condition. There are a few penciled pagination changes toward the end of the screenplay. 2. Dated July 1st, 1942, Millhauser and Riggs' "Revised Final" is a complete 115pp manuscript draft which consists of a heavily corrected mix of original watermarked ribbon typescript and studio-mimeographed pink pages, detailed red-penciled marginal corrections, additions, and emendations abound. Brad-bound in studio drab covers, typically worn but contents Very Good indeed. 3. Dated July 8th, 1942, an 112pp shooting script with studio-mimeographed blue-and white pages. Studio cover brittle but contents are clean and in Very Good condition. 4. Dated September 11th, 1942, complete in studio-mimeographed self-wrappers, the final dialogue continuity script, bound with two brads at the top, in Very Good condition. SHERLOCK HOLMES IN WASHINGTON opened on April 30th, 1943 to excellent critical reviews, especially for director Roy William Neill who used a few well-enacted Hitchcock elements to the twisty plot. There was also overwhelming praise from a thrilled public despite the fact Basil Rathbone switched his iconic pipe for cigarettes! A comprehensive one-of-a-kind archive unlikely to exist elsewhere in private hands. Please check out the other Sherlock Holmes original screenplays we have in stock. Signed. Script.
