What's that you say? We missed your birthday?

Well shoot.

Happy 115th, Basil. :)

Does anyone know the name of that main song played in 'Love from a stranger?' It's used twice in the film, and it's a famous classic.

It played when Lovel (Basil Rathbone) was in the cellar, and then again near the end of the movie.

It's the one that just gets faster and faster.

Thanks!

Hi! Found this referred to in another posting and decided to join. Basil Rathbone was my first major crish when I was a kid. I loved him as Sherlock Holmes. What are your fav roles?

A friend of mine is living in the upper floor of a two-story house that his dad owns in exchange for letting his dad use the lower floor for storage. Meaning his massive collection of books and records takes up the ENTIRE floor. 5 rooms you can barely walk through. It's physically impossible to get to half the stuff the piles are so huge.

So you can imagine my utter shock and excitement when I found this: http://www.basilrathbone.net/recordings/rh1.jpg happily staring up at me in an easily-accessible row of records. My shriek of excitement sent them all wondering whath had happened. I happily flailed my treasure and skipped away to hunt down more Basil, to no avail.

Hi! Just thought you guys might be interested to know that there is a mention of our Mr. Rathbone in, of all places, Memoirs of a Geisha, by Arthur Golden. I just reviewed it in my new book journal, http://omnivorousreadr.livejournal.com/4974.html (friend it if you like books!) /end shameless plug.

Okay, so I just bought the Complete set of Rathbone/Bruce Holmes films on dvd here: http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/dvd.cfm?itemID=MPD007708 for way cheaper than you can get them on Amazon.com.


And I have had a marathon all weekend. Literally, I have only left my house for about 3 hours on Saturday to go to Wal-Mart (I have just recently moved to North Carolina, and my roommate who is a teacher went home to Ohio for two months. I don't know anyone so I don't really do much of anything yet. Sorry I had to explain why I'm such a loser with no life!). So I watched movies all weekend. I am now on a crazy Holmesian high, so I thought I'd do a picspam for you all. :)



Dude, who knew the deerstalker and coat were BLUE???

MOOORE slightly unusual picsCollapse )

That was fun. :)
