    Are we supposed to go with the prejudices of the era and think that the slut did it or do we just jump to the butler/Nazi spy yet to be revealed?

    Stuart Holmes, who is listed as Man on Train Platform, was a party guest in The She-Creature and a reporter in Rocketship X-M. He had quite a career during the silent era, often portraying dastardly villains (looking at his IMDB headshot, you can see why). But once sound became ascendant, he was only able to get uncredited bit parts like this one. Behind the camera, cinematographer Maury Gertsman was cinematographer for The Brute Man, while assistant director Melville Shyer was assistant director for Jungle Goddess and Beginning of the End.

    Actually, neither one.
    I watched these movies with my Dad many times. If I recall correctly, the Flying Scotsman makes an appearance in this one.

    You are right, Kenneth Morgan. I actually know this movie and there is neither a butler/Nazi nor a slut. An elementary bit of misdirection eh, Watson? My brother Charley rode the Flying Scotsman to Edinburgh years ago. His advice was to keep your window closed. Coal soot, you know.

    These Basil Rathbone Sherlocks are my favorites from Rifftrax, so it was an insta-buy for me. Already watched and enjoyed, although it’s extremely short. More toy train footage than “The Giant Gila Monster”!

    Yeah, given these are barely an hour, a cheaper price might be nice. But I’d still buy them anyway, as long as that British guy isn’t riffing (though apparently he wrote the jokes for this)

    Not one of the better Rathbone movies, though.

    “Pearl of Death” is actually pretty good, though I doubt they’ll riff on it. It features Rondo Hatton, and Mary Jo has said she regretted how the show riffed on “The Brute Man”.
    “The Scarlet Claw”, “The Secret Weapon” and “The House of Fear” are also good ones.

    Another vote for “The House of Fear.” You can watch that one on YouTube and practically riff it yourself, if with nothing else other than “Woman in Green” callbacks.
