Basil Rathbone Master of Stage And Screen has published two letters allegedly from Basil that are NOTt by him. The handwriting is not his handwriting and the feelings expressed are so mean spirited and cheap they could not come from this wonderful man. It also alleges Ouida Rathbone tried to taker her own life! This is unthinkable for a person of her refinement and religous outlook and also absurd. What reason did this woman who was so loved and so blessed have to try an end her life? Any one who knew her and saw the love that bound her to her husband who adored her before anyone else in the world could possibly believe such rubbish. I have a lot of respect for Basil Rathbone Master Of Stage ANd Screen which is a great site and much better than  most of the silly teenager sites run by fan girls who should stick to Tumbler, but I’m afraid the site is wrong about this a I have Basil’s diaries and have compared the handwriting and it is not his.  This is mistaken identity and the letter was written by another or forged.
