Seven Degrees of Sherlock Holmes #19 - Errol Flynn, no, Bela Lugosi, no, Jean Simmons. . . . .

I knew the first choice would probably turn out easy, and it did.
So I made another choice and it also turned out easy.
Third choice, not expected to be easy, also was.
So, . . . instead of picking another this week, I will give you three.

The sad and damaged Errol Flynn (1909-1959)

starred in the great period film 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' - 1936

which also featured, lovable 'Dr. Watson' Nigel Bruce (1895-1953)

Well, that all came together to quick.
So here we go again.

Mr. Horror Movie himself, Bela Lugosi (1882-1956)

took part in what is sometimes called the worst movie ever, 'Plan 9 From Outer Space, 1959

which we already made a connection to HERE in our special BK edition of 'Seven Degrees'.

So, once more into the breach.

Jean Simmons, the beautiful, talented, Jean Simmons (1929-2010)

was in the wonderful film 'Young Bess' 1953

which also featured Stewart Granger (1913-1993)

who played Sherlock Holmes in the 1972 film 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'.

Three for the price of one.
So there you have it, there you are.


  1. That looks like a still from the Hammer Hound.....

    1. I love the title card, but do not know if it's Hammer or the Stewart Granger one.
      Will try to find out.
