You look sad by GoodOldBaz You look sad by GoodOldBaz
You’re a bit like my dad…when he was dying he was always cheerful and always lovely, except when he thought no one could see. I saw him once, he looked – sad...You look sad, when you think he can’t see you.

When I saw this picture of Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes, I thought of this right away. It is so perfect for Rathbone/Holmes and Bruce/Watson. The expression on Basil's face is just - heartbreaking. I don't think Rathbone/Holmes would have lasted long at all without his Watson, and of course, neither would Cumberbatch/Sherlock.

Thanks so much! It's from The Scarlett Claw, I think.

Awesome! While I have a very special spot in my heart for Jeremy, Basil will always be my Mr. Holmes :)

For me Jeremy is Holmes, but that dosen't stop me from watching others. I love Basil's portrayal, it really is brilliant! I just watched The Spiderwoman last night, probably my favourite so far :-) It's got quite a few funny moments, such as Watson unknowingly punching Holmes! :D

It's good to be that way! if we only liked one Holmes it would really a downer for us since then we wouldn't be able to enjoy all the other good portrayals. :)

Ah I love The Spider Woman! It's one of my favorites! But I think The Woman in Green is probably my very, very favorite. I love them all though! ;P

I think I'll rewatch it at the weekend with my Mum this time. I'm sure she'll love it :-) Oh The Woman in Green is a good one too. I really am watching these in the wrong order! Next time I'll have to watch them in the right order, besides it's a great excuse to watch them all over again! :D

Haha yes! Have you seen The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles yet? They are both quite good!

Awww. That face...it does make me think of that quote. I've only watched two of the Rathbone ones, but I've liked them so far.
