Dr. John H. Watson:
We thought you were taking an awful risk.

I dearly love all of the Basil Rathbone / Nigel Bruce SHERLOCK HOLMES movies, but this one is one of my favorites. Maybe it's just some fond memories from my youth. A modern comparison can be made between the chess game in this movie and the one in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Even though no one actually died in Potter's game, murder surrounded the Musgrave Ritual -- so which one could be deemed more violent? Both movies arrived at the mysteries' solutions after the completion of the game, so there's another loose comparison.
