Has anyone seen "Rondezvous", with William Powell and Rosalind Russell? in General Discussions Posted May 5, 2014 William Powell's first screen role was in SHERLOCK HOLMES (1922). John Barrymore is Holmes. Powell's supporting role is rather substantial and he's easily recognized. The film was restored and is in nice condition. TCM has run it several times (like most silents, at late night hours). I would LOVE to see him in this "Silent". If ever I should see that it is going to run again, I will be sure to set my DVR. I think very often how wonderful it would have been to see some of my favorite stars, in 'their' Silent days. We have missed a lot, but thank goodness for those who have cared enough to restore these 'gems'. Thank you mmroberts for taking the time to write.
