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.




As much as I like Jeremy Brett, I will always adore Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes.






And he makes a charming Guy of Gisbourne as well.






the Pirate Captain Levasseur from Captain Blood



And an-on-the-set picture of Rathbone and Errol Flynn. I'd like to say it was from Captain Blood, judging by Rathbone's hair. But Flynn never wears armor like that in Captain Blood. Possibly Adventures of Robin Hood, but then again Rathbone has a different hairstyle. Foohey.

He is fabulous. I do think Brett is good...but to me Rathbone will always be the definitive Holmes.
Hmm, I'll have to look at that community.:)

That's exactly how I feel:) I have to say, I like the moments when he's thinking rather hard, and his hair gets all tousled. He looks like a mad genius.

Basil is Great

Oh My God!!! I am a HUGE Basil Rathbone fan!!! I was so very excited to find this community. To show how much I adore the super talented actor, I have 11 of the Sherlock Holmes films on DVD,and I'm planning on acquiring all 15 ASAP, I tape every movie that comes on television that has him in it, no matter how small the part. I even find him kinda sexy as well, ESPECIALLY as the great detective, Sherlock Holmes (Is that wrong???) He's not what you'd call classically handsome, but there's something about his suaveness and that wonderful voice that sends shivers up my spine. I also have a thing for promenant noses. He is absolutely wonderful, and I count myself as one of his biggest fans.

I find Basil Rathbone incredibly sexy. It's not wrong at all. He has a superb voice that completely pulls you in. And a very attractive profile. *grin*

Re: Basil is Great

I totally agree!! I am so glad that someone besides me thinks Basil is sexy. Whenever I mention this to my friends, they look at me like I'm completely crazy once they realize who Basil Rathbone is. We Basil fans must stick together!!

Where can I get Basil icons for my Live Journal???

I noticed that some of you had Basil as your icons. How can I get one? As much as I admire Gerard Butler as the Phantom of the Opera, I would love to have one of Basil, especially for this community

Ps, I don't really know where you'd find Basil icons. I don't really have any myself. You could try looking in the Sherlock Holmes that was mentioned in the comments above. Good luck! :)

(Pps. I quite liked Gerard Butler as the Phantom, myself:)

I agree with you all. Except he is defintely what is classified as "classically handsome." He's tall, he's dark, he's got it all. Especially that lovely voice.
