Sherlock Holmes Meets the Universal Monsters: A Flick I'd Like To See
A couple of message boards I like to lurk at, Universal Monster Army & The Classic Horror Film Board had a couple of corresponding threads with some more than interesting "photoshopped" pictures. Not wanting to steal anyones' "thunder", I only posted just the above pic so you'll have to go to the sites yourself. This would have made for one heck of a flick(s)!
If you're into the old Universal Studios monster & Sherlock Holmes movies from the 30s' & 40s' half as much as I am, you're gonna LOVE these photos.
Oh yes! A great book to check out is Universal Horrors by Tom Weaver, Michael Brunas, & John Brunas. Not only does it review the companys' monster flicks of that era but also the Rathbone/Holmes flicks as well. I have it myself & heartily recommend it.
