Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce return as Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson in this installment from Universal's popular whodunnit series, which gets a simple but adequate presentation on DVD. Sherlock Holmes: The Pearl of Death (based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Six Napoleons) has been transferred to disc from a newly restored 35mm print, and is presented in the original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1 with the original screen logos and credits. The audio is mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo; the dialogue is in English, with no multiple language options or bonus materials included, though the quality of the visual presentation will certainly please fans of the series.
