The land grant / crown grant that was given to the Musgraves by a King Henry, lists King Henry as being King of "Great Britain, France Scotland and Ireland." This is in error, since there have been only "8" King Henry's in England's history, the last being "Henry VIII" in the 16th century. England didn't become part of "Great Britain" until 1707, with the "Act of Union" passed under Queen Anne. This occurred 160 years after Henry VIII's death.
There is also some doubt regarding the use of "France", since France oftentimes either wasn't a united country or existed side-by-side with England, thus making for confusion. The English king in question, would likely have referred not to "France" as part of his kingdom, but to which territories (such as Normandy) he controlled. See more »
[Lestrade brings a suspect's shoe to compare to recovered footprints. They match]
And that's Alfred Brunton's shoe.
Fits perfectly, Inspector. But the fact that these prints were made by Brunton's shoes does not prove that Brunton's feet were in them.
Why not? Where should Brunton's feet be, if not in his own shoes?
Dr. John H. Watson:
Well, they're not in them now, are they?

always enjoyed the atmosphere of this movie. spooky manor, wind and thunder and lightning. pleasure to watch over and over. its in my top 3 of the whole series starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. if any of you enjoy this movie then the other 2 that make up my top 3 would be of interest to you. they are House of Fear and Hound of the Baskervilles. another one that has great atmosphere but doesn't have the stately manor to speak of is the Scarlet Claw. the selections i have mentioned are best viewed at evening with all the lights off. i even go as far as lighting candles to give my own surroundings similar atmosphere.
