More from John Johnston, who plays Sherlock Holmes in our upcoming adventure to see The Speckled Band at The Classical Theatre Company: Q: There have been quite a few incarnations of Holmes since his first publishing in 1887, both on the stage and in film as well as in literature. Do you find any of them particularly inspirational? J: Oh yes. Definitely. He is a singular character, to be sure, but has appeared in as many different mediums as one could imagine. At this point, I've had decades of research into Holmes, just by my personal affinity for his stories. I enjoy aspects of all of them that I've seen, from the Peter Cushing's interpretation to Basil Rathbone, all the way up to Benedict Cumberbatch's modern version. My personal favorite (and the one that most directly influences my interpretation of Holmes) is Jeremy Brett's performance. When I was growing up, my family would sit down and eat our Sunday night dinner and watch Brett's Holmes series episode-by-episode. His frenetic energy, coupled with ...

BEGINS NEXT FRIDAY! The year 2014 marks the centennial of the start of World War I. It began in July, of 2014, and would end in November, 1919. As with any “great war”, in was the subject of many films, from the silent era, to the present day. In this course, we will view, and discuss three films, shown in their entirety, released by Warner Brothers, between 1938 and 1941, in which this major global conflict was the main focus. In Edmund Goulding’s THE DAWN PATROL (1938), Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone, and David Niven, are British flying aces, who contend with the harsh realities of air combat; in William Keighley’s THE FIGHTING 69th (1940), a loud-mouth braggart Jerry Plunkett (James Cagney) alienates his comrades, and officers, but Father Duffy (Pat O’ Brien), the regiment’s chaplain, has faith in Jerry. And, in Howard Hawks’ Sergeant York (1941), Gary Cooper (in an Academy Award winning performance) is the celebrated hillbilly sharpshooter, who is drafted in WWI, despite being a pacifist, b ...

Remembering the refined actor and swordsman Basil Rathbone (June 13, 1892 – July 21, 1967) on his birthday. One of the finest Golden Hollywood villains and heroes - from Errol Flynn's foe, to Arthur Conan Doyle's studious and famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. Starting out on the stage before 1920, he was a Shakespearian actor, and he made the leap to silent film in 1925. He returned to the stage periodically during his long career, played many radio shows, and appeared in films of many genres, even comedy spoofs such as The Court Jester (1956). In the first of the photos below: Taken by White Studio, Basil and Edna Best appear in the play, Mero. Related by basilrathbone.net: "A drama in three acts adapted by Arthur *** from the French play by Henri Berstein. Opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, New York City, April 16, 1931, and lasted 67 performances. Produced by Lee Shubert, staged by Marcel Varnel. For more info about the actor:

Thanks for letting me join. I loved Basil Rathbone but, having read every one of the Sherlock Holmes stories, My personal opinion is that Jeremy Brett is the perfect Sherlock Holmes and, to be fair, Edward Hardwicke was pretty much perfect as Dr Watson too!
English stage and screen actor William Claude Rains died on the 30th of May, 1967. Born in Camberwell, London, he grew up with what his daughter Jessica termed “a very serious Cockney accent and a speech impediment” but, after making his theatre debut at the age of 11 in Nell of Old Drury, RADA founder Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree saw huge acting talent in him, and paid for the elocution lessons necessary for him to become a professional actor. Rains later became a tutor at the Academy, where his students included John Gielgud, who later remarked, after the former had become an international star, “He was a great influence on me. I don't know what happened to him. I think he failed and went to America.” Rains was active in the London Scottish Regiment in the First World War, alongside fellow actors Basil Rathbone, Ronald Colman and Herbert Marshall. During his service he was involved in a gas attack, which left him virtually blind in one eye for the rest of his life. By the end of the conflict, he ha ...

Just answered a "Trivia Today" question (I get them every day) about who played the title role in the film "Lawrence of Arabia". Definitely one of the easier questions to answer but it reminded me how much I enjoyed the late Peter O'Toole's film debut (all his films, really). It's one of only a few DVDs I've actually purchased (in addition to "The Exorcist" and a collection of Sherlock Holmes movies starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce).

David Lean was a terrific director ("Dr. Shivago", "Bridge Over the River Kwai", and others) and Maurice Jarre's musical score was perfect (he also wrote the score for "Dr. Shivago"; remember "Lara's Theme"?).

Officially a British soldier had to be 19 years old to serve overseas but many lied about their age. About 250,000 under-age boys served. The youngest was discovered to be just 12. 2. Average life expectancy in the trenches was about six weeks. Junior officers and stretcher bearers were some of the people most at risk. 3. During four years 25 million tons of supplies were shipped to the British forces on the Western Front including three million tons of food and five million tons of oats and hay for the horses. 4. As the war went on the amount of food given to soldiers was reduced. A common meal in the trenches was maconochie - a stew of turnips, potatoes and carrots. Other rations included bully beef and even Marmite. There was a small rum ration but tea tasted horrible thanks to the chloride of lime used to p ...
