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


...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."
