One of the best interpretations of a Holmes story.
1 October 1999 | by (Bloomington, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

The Story holds pretty true to the book (The Valley of Fear), especially the flashback segment. Wontner and Fleming have excellent chemistry as Holmes and Watson, and Harding is a great Moriarty. The only drawbacks to the film, are the claustrophobic sets, and the silent movie style of direction.
