“Yes, it‘s elementary says Basil Rathbone,” is the slogan of this 1947 vintage advertisement by the Chesterfield Cigarettes and Tobacco. The ad features classic film star Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes in the film, “Dressed to Kill.” It was the last of 14 Sherlock Holmes films that Rathbone made with Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson. See the scan.
The ad is 10x13 and in color. It is in very good condition with nice detail and color.
