Basil Rathbone community

[music |Berlioz- Symphonie Fantastique]

This seems to be the perfect place to ask if anyone is interested in a shirt I designed. I've sold about 30 to people at my school, but am hoping to find people in other places who are interested, as well. I contacted the Sherlock Holmes museum, but never heard back from them. The sillouhette is, of course, of Basil. If you are interested, feel free to email me at aretrospection@hotmail.com

Hubert Hawkins: I'd like to get in, get on with it, get it over with, and get out. Get it?
Ravenhurst: Got it.
Hubert Hawkins: Good.

And for no reason, other than the Court Jester made me think of him, here are random pictures of Basil Rathbone. One of the best fencers in the history of films.

Rathbone...Basil Rathbone.Collapse )

Hey guys! I learned about this community through itsaso's lj. I've been a Basil Rathbone fan for a while now (first saw him in the Sherlock Holmes movies, no surprise there...) so I thought I'd join. From what I've seen, he seems to have been a great actor, and even better, he seems to have been a great person. :) Great idea for a community!

Yay! A Basil Rathbone community! Count me in--I've been a fan of his since, oh, second or third grade, lol. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to see a lot of his films (just the Sherlock Holmes ones), so any suggestions on others I should see would be much appreciated. :)

Great job on the layout/research stuff, by the way!

Just a few reasons... [Apr. 20th, 2004|03:35 pm]

...to love Basil Rathbone.

  • His amazing baritone voice.
  • ...reading Poe's "The Raven"..."Take thy BEAK from out my HEART and take thy FORM from off my DOOR!!" *shiver*
  • Holmes' piercing gaze.
  • Those horribly corny movies from the 60's that he made to support his wife and family.
  • Because even though they had transparent plots and hideous costumes and effects, he still gave his best performance.
  • Because any celebrity who stays married for 43 years has got to have something special about them.
  • He was arrested for promoting public awareness to homosexuality - in the 20's.
  • Because he preferred speaking at college campuses where the audience was not so "highbrow."
  • Because although he had already served in WWI, he still tried to serve in WWII.
  • His story about meeting his most famous role, "Daydream."
  • Because, Watson, "As you may have noticed, throughout time, prominent men have prominent noses."
