Quotes & Awards

  • “Basil Rathbone’s Sherlock Holmes will be familiar from movies, and Nigel Bruce makes a convincing, if intentionally dim, Dr. Watson. The stories move along at a crisp pace, and the few sound effects and musical transitions are simple, but smooth and convincing.”

About the Author
Author Anthony Boucher

Anthony Boucher, pseudonym of William Anthony Parker White (1911–1968), was a prolific mystery author and Edgar Award–winning editor. Between 1942 and 1947 he worked for the San Francisco Chronicle as a mystery reviewer and also spent time writing for the New York Times. His short fiction has been published in many distinguished American fiction magazines, including Adventure, Black Mask, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, Weird Tales, and many others. His short story “The Quest for Saint Aquin” was selected by the Science Fiction Writers of America as one of the best science fiction short stories of all time. In the 1940s, he was also involved in radio, hosting a show called Golden Voices and writing a number of Sherlock Holmes dramas. He also helped to create the Mystery Writers of America in 1946 and served as president in 1951.

Nigel Bruce (1895–1953) was a British character actor best known for playing bumbling English aristocrats, high-society snobs, and military types. He played Dr. John Watson to Basil Rathbone’s Sherlock Holmes in a number of films, as well as in the classic radio show.
