Early German sound version of the classic story
30 October 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

I watched this in German with out subtitles so some of this was tough going.

Actually the film isn't bad, the problem is that its a 75 minute film where Holmes and Watson don't show up for 26 minutes. This isn't bad, but if you're watching this and not understanding the language the fact that most of the first half hour is simply people talking in a room makes it very very difficult to follow whats going on. Just before Holmes arrives you get out of the room and its more than people talking so you can begin to be able to follow the plot, assuming you do know the story.

This is a good version of the story, one that I plan on trying again another time, starting 25 minutes in, I don't want my experience tainted by the long talk.

If you get a chance to see it, preferably with subtitles, by all means do watch it. Even with out subtitles its worth a shot, just zip through the first 25 minutes on scan.
