Did You Know?
Although credited as an adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
's short story "The Adventure of the Dancing Men", the plot is an original story based on historical events which happened after Doyle's death. The only resemblance to the credited story is a cameo by the "secret code" of stick figure drawings. There is another moment taken from Doyle's "Sign of Four": the trail of luminous paint is confused when luminous paint is picked up by wheels of another vehicle at a crossroads. See more
