When several wealthy gamblers are found dead in their beds with no visible sign of forced entry or foul play, it’s a case made for the Baker Street sleuth. Sherlock Holmes and ever-trusty assistant Dr. Watson investigate these “pajama suicides.”

Enjoyable 7th entry in the Rathbone/Bruce series that finds Holmes pitted against a femme fatale behind a series of so-called suicides. Entry may well be light on 'sleuthing' but has enough action to compensate.
A delightful female villain that got her own spin-off movie afterwards is the highlight of one of the better Sherlock Holmes entries with Basil Rathbone. It really feels like Sherlock Holmes has a big challenge this time and for once smart use of propaganda in an amusement park where Hitler is used as a target in a shooting gallery while behind the target is a trapped Holmes ready to get shot.
