Join author Mark Iveson to find out more about screen legend Basil Rathbone.

An incredible actor and outstanding big screen villain, whose presence enriched many a movie classic, Basil Rathbone achieved cinema immortality as the definitive Sherlock Holmes, his association with the Great Detective proved so successful, it limited his career options, leaving him a very bitter man in his later years. This talk covers his life and how his once brilliant career went into decline as Holmes took over his life.
