    Dressed to Kill

    ★★★★

    Sadly, this is the last outing with Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Watson. (I suppose it's good to end on a high note, though, given that the last few entries felt a bit tepid.)

    In Dressed to Kill, several people bid on plain wooden music boxes at an auction. (The boxes, unbeknownst to them, were made by prisoners.) After the auction has wrapped, a desperate man shows up and tells the auctioneer that the music boxes have…

    The Hills Run Red

    ★★★½

    "The Hills Run Red stands as a testament to the Hollywood heroes and directors of the fifties and their values, though [Director Carlo] Lizzani's sentimental treatment seems at odds with the increasingly violent developments that were overtaking the genre" (Hughes 80). The title The Hills Run Red makes you think that this might be another Wild Bunch (1969). It's not. Although it's violent and sometimes cruel, it's mostly bloodless.

    The movie begins with Jerry Brewster and Ken Seagull on the…
