Philip St. John Basil Rathbone MC (13 June 1892 – 21 July 1967) was a South African-born English actor best known for his role as Sherlock Holmes in fourteen Hollywood films and in a radio series.

When he wasn't playing Sherlock Holmes, he was often playing sneering villains. He was a real-life Master Swordsman, so he got cast in a lot of swashbucklers (where he almost always lost those sword fights to the likes of Errol Flynn).
