Rathbone actively campaigned for the role, however, but to no avail. Despite his film success, Rathbone always insisted that he wished to be remembered for his stage career.
He said that his favourite role was that of Romeo. Rathbone is most widely recognised for his many portrayals of Sherlock Holmes.
When asked who could possibly play Holmes, Markey incredulously replied, " Who?! Basil Rathbone! Interest in Holmes cooled at Fox, but Universal Pictures picked up the character, and twelve feature films were made between and for release until , all of which co-starred Nigel Bruce as Dr.
The first two films, The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes both produced by Fox in , were set in the late Victorian times of the original stories.
The later instalments, produced by Universal, beginning with Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror , were set in contemporary times.
The first three had World War II -related plots. Concurrent with the films, Rathbone and Bruce reprised their film roles in a radio series, The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes , which began in October Rathbone appeared in the radio series as long as the film series was active, but after the films lapsed in , Rathbone ceded his radio part to Tom Conway.
Conway and Bruce carried on with the series for two seasons, until both dropped out in July The many Holmes sequels typecast Rathbone, and he was unable to shake himself completely free from the shadow of the Great Detective despite appearing in other film roles.
Resenting the typecasting, Rathbone refused to renew his contract at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and returned to Broadway. In later years, however, Rathbone willingly made the Holmes association, as in a TV sketch with Milton Berle in the early s, in which he donned the deerstalker cap and Inverness cape.
In the s, dressed as Holmes, he appeared in a series of TV commercials for Getz Exterminators "Getz gets 'em, since ! Rathbone also brought Holmes to the stage in a play written by his wife Ouida.
Nigel Bruce was slated to portray Dr Watson once more but became too ill and the part was played by character actor Jack Raine. Bruce's absence depressed Rathbone, particularly after Bruce died on 8 October , while the play was in rehearsals.
The play ran for only three performances. Rathbone also appeared on Broadway numerous times. Austin Sloper in the original production of The Heiress , which featured Wendy Hiller as his timid, spinster daughter.
He also received accolades for his performance in Archibald Macleish 's J. Through the s and s, he continued to appear in several dignified anthology programmes on television.
To support his second wife's lavish tastes, he appeared as a panelist on the television game show The Name's the Same in , and he also took roles in cheap film thrillers of far lesser quality, such as The Black Sleep , Queen of Blood , The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini , wherein the character ' Eric Von Zipper' played by Harvey Lembeck jokes, "That guy looks like Sherlock Holmes" , Hillbillys in a Haunted House , also featuring Lon Chaney Jr and John Carradine , and his last film, a low budget, Mexican horror film called Autopsy of a Ghost He is also known for his spoken word recordings, including his interpretation of Clement C.
Moore 's " The Night Before Christmas ". In four Caedmon albums Rathbone revisited his characterization of Sherlock Holmes. In the rest he changes his voice for each character, including an rendition of Nigel Bruce for Dr Watson.
Rathbone also made many other recordings, of everything from a dramatised version of Oliver Twist to a recording of Prokofiev 's Peter and the Wolf with Leopold Stokowski conducting to a dramatised version of Charles Dickens 's A Christmas Carol.
On television he appeared in two musical versions of Dickens's A Christmas Carol : one in , in which he played Marley's Ghost opposite Fredric March 's Scrooge, and the original live action version of The Stingiest Man In Town , in which he starred as a singing Ebenezer Scrooge.

Wikimedia Commons. Sidney Lanfield. The Hound of the Baskervilles — Holmes and Watson are consulted about the arrival in England of Sir Henry Baskerville, the last of the Baskervilles, heir to the family estate on Dartmoor , following the death of Sir Henry's uncle.
A local myth surrounds the Baskervilles that a vicious hound stalks the descendants of the family. Holmes sends Watson to Baskerville Hall while he assumes the disguise of a peddler.
Holmes reveals his identity to Watson and the two witness the death of an escaped convict, killed by a large hound.
Holmes and Watson declare the case closed and claim that they are leaving Baskerville Hall; they return to the moor that night and kill the dog as it attacks Sir Henry.
Holmes then unmasks the killer as John Stapleton, who was a Baskerville and hoped to claim the fortune and title for himself.
Alfred L. After Professor Moriarty is acquitted for murder, Holmes and Watson are visited by Ann Brandon, who tells the detectives that her brother Lloyd has received a strange note—a drawing of a man with an albatross hanging around his neck—identical to one received by her father just before his murder ten years previously: her brother is killed later that day.
Holmes believes an attempt will be made on Ann's life and he disguises himself as a music hall entertainer for a garden party, where he captures her assailant.
The assassin is Gabriel Mateo, out for revenge on the Brandons for the murder of his father by Ann's father in a dispute over ownership of their South American mine; Mateo reveals that it was Moriarty who urged him to seek revenge.
Holmes realises Moriarty was using Ann's attempted murder as a distraction from his real crime: an attempt to steal the Crown Jewels.
Holmes goes to the Tower of London where Moriarty is masquerading as a policeman. The pair struggle, and Moriarty falls, presumably to his death.
John Rawlins. During the Second World War, Holmes is consulted by the British Inner Council to capture a Nazi agent who broadcasts under the name the "Voice of Terror", and who appears to be running a sabotage ring in England.
After Gavin, one of his underworld contacts, is killed on his doorstep, Holmes convinces Kitty—Gavin's wife—to find out the meaning of a clue Gavin had uncovered.
She does so, and manages to inveigle her way into the house of Meade, the main Nazi agent in the ring.
After being given a tip off from Kitty, Holmes takes the Inner Council to an abandoned church on the coast of southern England, where they thwart a German invasion.
Holmes then uncovers the mole in the council, Sir Evan Barham, head of the council and the German spy Heinrich von Bork, who had been posing as Barham for the previous twenty years.
Roy William Neill. A disguised Holmes helps Swiss scientist Dr Tobel to escape from Gestapo kidnappers and flee to England with his revolutionary bombsight.
Without telling Holmes or Watson, Tobel splits his bombsight into four parts and leaves a part each with four Swiss scientists also living in London.
Shortly afterwards, he is kidnapped by Professor Moriarty , who is working with the Nazis; a coded note giving details of the scientists that was left for Holmes was also taken by Moriarty.
Holmes discovers tracings of the note and decodes it, but three of the scientists had already been killed. Holmes takes the place of the fourth scientist and allows himself to be kidnapped by Moriarty's men.
Moriarty tries to kill Holmes by exsanguination , but Watson and Inspector Lestrade rescue the detective.
As Moriarty tries to escape he falls through a trapdoor, seemingly to his death. A British courier is carrying top secret papers that he had put onto microfilm and inserted into a matchbook ; realising he is being pursued by Nazi agents, he drops the matches into a handbag of the socialite Nancy Partridge, a fellow passenger.
He is subsequently kidnapped and killed and Holmes is instructed to find his killers and the missing document. On his arrival in Washington, Holmes soon realises that Partridge has the document.
The Nazi agents, led by William Easter, have also come to the same conclusion and kidnapped her. Holmes tracks her down to an antique shop and meets the owner, whom he recognises as a German agent from the First World War.
Holmes, Watson and the police subsequently round up Easter and the gang, and obtain the microfilmed documents. Watson is the doctor in charge of an army hospital at Musgrave Manor in Northumberland; when his assistant, Dr.
Bob Sexton, is attacked, Watson asks Holmes for help. On their arrival they find the body of Geoffrey Musgrave, head of the family.
Ouida felt that Rodion and Caroline should have been grateful to her for all her hard work in planning and executing this wonderful wedding reception for them.
This difference of opinion led to an unfortunate blowup between Rodion and Caroline on one side, and Ouida and Basil on the other side. They exchanged words that led to Basil saying, "I never want to see you again.
As a result, Rodion and Caroline left the Rathbone household, and moved to Chicago. He trained to be a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force.
And, except for one occasion two decades later, Rodion did not see his father again. Sadly, Rodion's children did not have a relationship with their grandfather.
A newspaper article dated June 22, , announced that the Rathbones adopted a baby girl when she was 11 weeks old.
The article mentioned that their own baby died 11 years ago Basil and Ouida named their baby Cynthia. By all accounts, Rathbone was a very devoted father and spent a lot of time with his daughter.
When Cynthia was older she even accompanied her father on his summer stock tours. In England declared war on Germany. Rathbone wished to serve his country, but due to his age 47 , the war office in London turned him down.
Rathbone entertained troops in California, visited army hospitals, and volunteered his help in the Hollywood Canteen.
They continued playing Holmes and Watson on radio and in films for seven years. After so many years, however, Rathbone grew tired of playing Sherlock Holmes and was bored with the character.
Rathbone states in his autobiography p. Rathbone was also annoyed with the character of Holmes: "His perpetual seeming assumption of infallibility; his interminable success; could he not fail just once and prove himself a human being like the rest of us!
It's just as well I never met Rathbone. We would have argued about Sherlock Holmes. Although Sherlock Holmes triumphed in the end of the films, he did misread clues and walk into traps.
He nearly died at the hands of Moriarty several times, and was rescued by Watson! Finally, Rathbone also stated that he felt the Sherlock Holmes stories were dated and old-fashioned.
The stories are still enjoyed by millions of people, young and old. In Rathbone's film and radio contracts expired.
So he refused to renew his contracts, and he and Ouida moved back to New York. At first Rathbone had some difficulty getting parts because of his identification with Sherlock Holmes.
In Rathbone was offered the role of Dr. Sloper in The Heiress , a role that he found fascinating. The play was a great success on and off Broadway and Rathbone received a Tony award for his performance.
Rathbone had hoped to repeat the role of Dr. Sloper in the film and was crushed when the part went to Ralph Richardson.
In Rathbone felt ready to play Sherlock Holmes again and asked Ouida to write a play. Using elements from several of Conan Doyle's stories, she wrote a play and received the approval of Conan Doyle's son Adrian.
The play opened in Unfortunately, it received mediocre reviews and closed after only three performances. The Heiress was Rathbone's last major success.
He continued to appear in plays on and off Broadway throughout the s. He also did television plays and made recordings record albums.
Rathbone traveled back to Hollywood to make five films during the s. Basil Rathbone made ten films during the s, some of which he was not proud of, and appeared in only for the money.
Basil's wife Ouida spent his money as fast as he made it, so he was never able to stop working. He continued to live in New York, but kept himself busy traveling to many cities giving lectures and doing his one-man show.
The late Dr. It's an interesting story, well worth reading. Rathbone enjoyed visiting college campuses because the audiences were not "highbrow.

At one time Wikipedia carried the information that Basil Rathbone was knighted in as a knight bachelor, and then in he was elevated to KBE.
Wikipedia listed no source for this information, and it has now been removed. But the knighthood information has spread all over the Internet, so people are wondering: Was he or wasn't he?
My research has uncovered no evidence that Rathbone was ever knighted. If Rathbone had been knighted,.
