It's a superb restored set. Includes an interesting (short) documentary about the restoration process and around 40% of the movies have an audio commentary by a Sherlockian expert that is very illuminating about the actors, actions, scenes, scripts, characters, etc etc.

Of course some of the movies are a bit corny to a 2008 audience, but tremendous that the whole canon has been preserved/presented in this way.

I love these movies. Ignoring some of the cliche endings in the war era ones (a rallying message for the masses) they are absolutely hilarious.

I have this boxset, cheapest price before xmas was 25 quid. If you love your old B & W then this is a must.

I've already got it, so I'd watch it :-D

Many thanks for this,

Brings back so many memories as a kid watching the The Hound Of The Baskervilles with Rathbone and being scared out of my wits. The series of films are still one of my favourites and always watched any re-runs when they where on (usually over Bank Holidays).

Heat and thanks again

This can still be purchased from ]Amazon.co.uk for £17.98 and if you use your HUKD voucher you can get another £2.50 of the price.

Can someone unexpire the deal and I will edit the original post to Amazon. instead of Play who have now increased the price.

Unexpired Thanks for the find and letting us know.

edit: sorry just realized it's from Play originally, so you'll need to make a new thread.
