Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Date: January 2008
Duration: 1 hours 9 minutes
From 1939 to 1946 Americans gathered around the radio to listen to The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes-featuring Basil Rathbone as the high-strung crime-solver and Nigel Bruce as his phlegmatic assistant, Dr. Watson.
Witty, fast-paced and always surprising, these great radio plays, written by the prolific writing team of Anthony Boucher and Denis Green, are as fresh today as they were then, and feature perfect sound along with nostalgic war-time announcements, original narrations and radio commercials
