Basil Rathbone : How big a star was he during his lifetime?

How big a star was he during his lifetime?

Sure, Basil was an established actor b68 who performed in many theatre productions, movies, radio and TV.

But during his lifetime, was he very well known and as famous as, say, Clark Gable or Gregory Peck?

Either way, It seemed he gained posthumous fame with TV re-runs of Sherlock Holmes and his swashbuckler films.
