Terror by Night (1946)
The penultimate entry in Universal’s Sherlock Holmes series, Terror by Night takes place almost exclusively on a speeding train, en route from London to Edinburgh. Holmes (Basil Rathbone) is on board to protect a valuable diamond from the clutches of master criminal Colonel Sebastian Moran. The trouble is, Moran is a master of disguise, and could be just about any one of the other passengers. Murder and mayhem plague the train excursion before Holmes can successfully complete his mention. Poor old Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) is a bit denser than usual here, though his ingenuousness is cleverly woven into the script. Alan Mowbray, who played Inspector Lestrade in the 1932 Clive Brook adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, is seen in a pivotal supporting role.

A Londres, une jeune femme, Vivian Vedder, vérifie que le charpentier a terminé le cercueil pour sa mère récemment décédée, qu’elle doit accompagner en Écosse par le train. Elle embarque, en même temps que Lady Margaret Carstairs (propriétaire du célèbre diamant “Star of Rhodesia”), son fils Ronald, Holmes (qui a été embauché pour protéger le diamant), l’inspecteur Lestrade (qui feint de partir pécher dans le Nord mais qui est lui aussi chargé de la sécurité du diamant), Watson et son ami le major Duncan-Bleek. Après le départ du train, Holmes et Watson examinent le diamant de 423 carats en compagnie de Lady Margaret et de Ronald.
