Sherlock Holmes Box Set Released Featuring Restored Arthur Wontner and Reginald Owen Films

Film Detective Releases on Blu-ray or DVD Restored  Sherlock Holmes Classics Amazing Sherlock Holmes Film Box Set Featuring Restored Arthur Wontner and Reginald Owen   The last couple years I have written about the need to restore the existing Arthur Wontner Sherlock Holmes Films. Some people commented that it would never happen. Thankfully they are wrong!  Over the years there have been many releases of  dreadfully poor quality versions of the Arthur Wontner Sherlock Holmes films. Previously, The Sign of Four: Sherlock Holmes' Greatest Case (1932) was beautifully restored by Ealing Studios, Network and Studio Canal. It is available from Amazon on dvd - Ealing Studios Rarities Collection Volume 14. Then Philip Hopkins from Film Detective restored the Silver Blaze (1937) (USA title: Murder at the Baskervilles, release 1941), based on "The Adventure of Silver Blaze".  Jeff Joseph, long time film collector, historian restored  Fatal Hour (The Sleeping Cardinal 1931) .
