(Review originally written at 29 December 2003)

The fantastic Sherlock Holmes has solved yet another murdering mystery, in a nice '40's atmosphere and with fantastic performances by the cast especially Basil Rathbone as the legendary well known Sherlock Holmes is fantastic.

It's a shame you can see that this movie has been based on a book. Some needless characters and plot lines give this away. But the charm of the movie is the nice atmosphere and the top notch performances by the cast.

The story is quite nice with the exception of course of the needless plot lines and it contains some nice humor and the movie truly has a fantastic and tense ending but the movie is too short to become really interesting. Still the movie is just as entertaining and good as an 1 hour long English detectives series episodes that are made these days.

Great for the fans, fun for the casual viewers.
