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…
