Irene Adler actress


Recommended Posts

Hi Dennis! :wave: To the best of my knowledge, she hasn’t, but I’m sure one of our experts is going to chime in soon with a definite answer.

Hi, Dennis -- welcome to Sherlock Forum!   :welcome:

Like Caya, I'm no expert, and It's been a while since I watched the Rathbone movies -- but I don't offhand recall them ever having Irene Adler as a character.  I did find this on IMDb (on the Quotes page for Dressed to Kill) :

Watson : Humph, Irene Adler, what a striking looking woman from the brief glance I had of her. Seems only yesterday. What charm. Hmmmm. What poise. And what a mind! Sharp enough and brilliant enough to outwit the-the great Sherlock Holmes himself!

Holmes : I take it that the new issue of the Strand Magazine is out containing another of your slightly lurid tales.

Watson : It is indeed!

Holmes : And what do you call this one?

Watson : I call it "A Scandal in Bohemia." Not a bad title, huh?

Holmes : Hmm. If you must record my exploits, I do wish you would put less emphasis on the melodramatic and more on the intellectual issues involved.

Watson : More on the intel... what do you mean by that?

Holmes : Well I do hope you've given, um, *The* Woman a soul, she had one, you know.

Watson : By *The* Woman, I suppose you mean Irene Adler?

Holmes : Yes... I shall always remember her... as *The* Woman.

So apparently no actress in that movie, just some talk *about* the character.  I wouldn't be surprised if that was as close as they got in those movies.

Irene Adler wasn’t portrayed in the Rathbone movies but she did get the mention in Dressed To Kill (quoted above by Carol)

Thanks, Herlock.

Well, Dennis, there's your definitive answer -- if Herlock doesn't know of any appearance by Adler, then there wasn't one.
