The Woman in Green (27-Jul-1945)

Director: Roy William Neill

Writer: Bertram Millhauser

From story: The Empty House by Arthur Conan Doyle

Keywords: Mystery, Sherlock Holmes, Hypnotism

Someone is murdering women in London, seemingly without pattern, each with their right forefinger dismembered; Scotland Yard suspects an ordinary serial killer but Sherlock Holmes believes considerable thought underlies the crime spree. Good performances backing a rather weak script. Eleventh of 14 films starring Basil Rathbone as Holmes.
