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]


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



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."[4]
