    Hmm.

    The clothes look older than the 1950s . . . so the movie is at least set in a time before then . . . perhaps the film setting is a bit more turn of the century (btw someone says turn of the 20th century does that mean the beginning or end of the 2oth century? Anyways I mean the beginning of the 20th century) . . .

    Are those two guys actually together? The one on the ground is dressed more formally that the other guy. So whatever misadventure the guy on the ground has suffered, the standing person seems to have just stumbled across it . . . Definitely looks English from the setting from both photos.

    Legal matter . . . crime? Well to do English gentleman from late Victorian era involved with crime . . . Hmm. Too late a setting for something Dickens . . . There's no Basil Rathbone so not Sherlock Holmes . . . Wait!

    Is that Watson?!

    If so, then it's a Sherlock Holmes movie. No idea which one.

    apologies to all for the delay in getting back to this. in answer to your questions, Dust for eyes, these screenies are indeed from the US produced Sherlock Holmes Film series of 14 Films Produced and released twice a year between 1939 and 1946.

    Ergo, that is Basil Rathbone as Doctor Watson and now that you have it narrowed down I shall supply another screenshot for you.

    alas this last one should definitively tip off the astute.

    So I'll say it's from the first one: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

    Man, that series had two films a year for seven years? Puts Hollywood's current sequel fixation in perspective.

    Oh and I think Basil Rathbone played Holmes, not Watson.

    and sorry, Dust for eyes that is not the Film. two more guesses and then I'll give it up in order to let someone else have turn.
    I watched all the Films and came to a sickening realization only minutes ago.

    DustForEyes:
    You Sir are indeed correct.
    The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (the second of the 1939 Releases) is the correct movie.

    the First Movie released in 1939 was The Hound of the Baskervilles.


    my sincere apologies in this massive cock up.

    Bonus Trivia Time:
    both of these Films, the first in a series of Fourteen were produced by 20th Century Fox. before production of the series moved to Universal whom presumably took time to let contractual issues to sort themselves out in terms of rights etc. it's also notable that all later films in the series occur in the 1940's as opposed to the Victorian Era (1837-1901) with the only direct Link the later films carry is the casting of four people from Fox inclusive of the two leads.
