Basil Rathbone

Actor, Director

Philip St. John Basil Rathbone, MC (13 June 1892 – 21 July 1967) was a South African-born British actor. He rose to prominence in the UK as a Shakespearean stage actor and went on to appear in over 70 films, primarily costume dramas, swashbucklers and, occasionally, horror films. He frequently portrayed suave villains or morally ambiguous characters, such as Murdstone in David Copperfield (1935) and Sir Guy of Gisbourne in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). His most famous role, however, was heroic — that of Sherlock Holmes in fourteen Hollywood films made between 1939 and 1946 and in a radio series. His later career included roles on Broadway, as well as self-ironic film and television work. He received a Tony Award in 1948 as Best Actor in a Play.Source: Wikipedia

    Have been an Extremely Devout Admirer, Fan and Appreciator of BASIL'S ever since I was 7 { 1960 }. My Mom was a fan, she first introduced his unequalled gifted talent to me. BASIL to me is the quintessential ' Holmes '--even though I really like J. Brett Report abuse
