The Missing Rembrandt is a 1932 British mystery film directed by Leslie S. Hiscott and starring Arthur Wontner, Jane Welsh, Miles Mander, and Francis L. Sullivan.[1] It is considered a lost film.[2][3] The film was loosely based on the 1904 Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton" by Arthur Conan Doyle.[4]

It is the second film in the 1931–1937 film series starring Wontner as Sherlock Holmes.[4]

Plot

Sherlock Holmes goes on the trail of a Rembrandt painting, stolen by a drug-addicted artist.

Cast

Reception

The New York Times reviewer wrote that, though it is "slightly changed as to action and entirely as to title, provides both excitement and laughter" and "brings back a number of screen actors who by this time seem to be perfectly at home in their parts."[5]
