The review of the 11th Sherlock Holmes film from Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce is complete: The Woman In Green. Featuring quite a few familiar faces, with a plot revolving around serial killings, blackmail and hypnosis. Darker fare than usual, but still a good one!
Finished writing up the Holmes film Woman In Green today. It’s a pretty good one, with a bunch of scenes that were echoed in the recent BBC remake. Also a surprisingly realistic portrayal of hypnosis. Conclusions, editing and pictures to follow.
While the next chapter ferments in my brain, I continued work on the next Sherlock review. Only three more left after this, but I should have rewriting to serve as a staple by then.
Chapter 29 is planned out! I think there are two more chapters after this one. Maybe more, depending. (What I have for the next chapter might make more sense as two, but first I’ll build that bridge and then I’ll cross it.) Still, the end is in sight. I can see the pub at the end of the tunnel…
Today’s writing was the three-paragraph introduction for a review of The Woman In Green, the eleventh of the Rathbone and Holmes films, featuring the return of a familiar face with a new name, and a familiar name with a new face. Review coming soon, I guess, depending on if I get dragged into novel writing instead.
The chapter with the spies is finally done! Long one, too. Will need a lot of editing, I think. Still, that pushes the story forward a bit – next chapter the mystery may start to come into focus. Then I blow stuff up. Then Poirot calls them all into the parlour – wait, that’s not me. Anyway. Onward!
Today was the perfect example of not feeling it at all, and writing it anyway. I get the feeling that I will have to rewrite this section with an axe. Still, the story has moved forwards – now I just need to figure out the next bit…
Today I completed a review of one of my favourite Rathbone and Holmes films, Sherlock Holmes and the House of Fear. It’s definitely the most classical mystery story in the series, and has some of the best performances from the regulars. Lestrade, especially, has some awesome scenes.
Today I finished off the House Of Fear review – I’ll edit it and add pictures soon.
Today I completed the synopsis writeup of Sherlock Holmes and the House of Fear, which is a LOT better than I remember. Looking forward to writing my conclusions on it.
