Holmes and Watson ripoff, 17 March 2011
Author: blanche-2 from United States

Sexton Blake (George Curzon) and his sidekick Tinker (Tony Sympson) try to unmask the head of a crime syndicate in "The Hooded Terror," a 1938 B British film. Sexton lives on Baker Street, I guess up the road a bit from Sherlock, whom he takes after with his scientific experiments, his assistant, his landlady, and his amateur status.

Somehwat slow-moving, this film is a combination of suspense with a touch of horror. Tod Slaughter plays the villainous Michael Larron, and Greta Gynt is Mademoiselle Julie.

If you're a Slaughter fan, you will enjoy this perhaps better than I did. Curzon and Sympson are pleasant, but they just don't have the panache and bite of Sherlock and Watson.
