Sherlock Holmes in Washington is an American 1943 detective movie, directed by Roy William Neill and starring Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson. This is the fifth installment to the series of fourteen Sherlock Holmes films starring Rathbone and Bruce. Like most of the films in the series, this one is set during WW2. A British courier delivers a vital secret document to USA but he is murdered and the document disappeared. The British government turns to Holmes for help, and the famous detective together with Dr. Watson hurries to Washington where he confronts the spy ring.


The following weapons were used in the film Sherlock Holmes in Washington:

Colt Police Positive

Colt Police Positive revolvers are used by the head of the spy ring Heinrich Hinkel, posing under the name Richard Stanley (George Zucco), his second-in-command William Easter (Henry Daniell), and Washington PD Detective Lt.

Colt Detective Special

A Colt Detective Special revolver is used by Stanley's henchman Howe (Don Terry). Cady (Bradley Page), another henchman, holds a compact revolver that isn's seen clear but appears to be a Colt and very possibly also a Detective Special.
