(*Movie quote*) - "Pip! Pip! Cheerio!"

1946's "Terror By Night" is definitely not Film Noir. No way. It's a "Sherlock Holmes" crime-drama starring Basil Rathbone as everyone's favourite, Victorian-era, super-sleuth.

On a speeding night-train heading from London to Edinburgh, Scotland - The priceless "Star of Rhodesia" diamond goes missing - And it's now up to the dynamic duo of Holmes and Watson to sift through a bevy of suspicious characters in order to recover this precious gem.

Filled to overflowing with brilliant deductions, shadowed mystery, and deadly intrigue - "Terror By Night" moves along at a very brisk pace with its brief, 60-minute running time.
