Basil Rathbone’s telegram to Nigel Bruce who at the time was suffering from a severe bout of depression.
Despite my personal feelings towards Bruce’s portrayal, I can’t help but smile while reading this and as I understand it, Bruce credited Rathbone for saving his life during those dark days. It’s rather amazing to consider how so many Holmes and Watson actors developed such intimate friendships due to Conan Doyle’s work.
“He’s very special. He’s an invention. The closest thing I could find to that was the fallen angel. The fallen angel believes in the beauty of the darkness. That is so incomprehensible to us, we can’t understand it, and so we’re attracted to it. So I wasn’t reading textbooks about mental disease, I was imagining how it was to be Satan.” (x)
