AND he once sat on our dining room table.

(I was not there to witness the event since I think I was about four months old at the time. But it's passed into our family history).

MissMatilda: So right! He is the only Sherlock I will watch!

Gingey (or is it Ginqey? You really need to tell me, I'm not sure because of the underline!!!): He definitely did. He was anything but forgettable!

Shay: I am so intrigued now! Do tell more!

Love Basil Rathbone! He's the definitive Sherlock Holmes to me too. I've been watching a lot of "The Court Jester" lately, because my little nephew loves it. Basil is so great in it!
