Trivia

As was common in German films of the era, this movie was shot without live sound, and all voices were dubbed in post-production. Christopher Lee and Thorley Walters were not scheduled to dub their own voices for the English dubbed version (or any other), and were dubbed by other actors. See more »

Goofs

The amount of beer in (the disguised) Sherlock Holmes's glass varies considerably between shots during the final scene set in the Hare and Eagle Pub. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Watson: What do you suppose that is?
Sherlock Holmes: It looks remarkably like a grave.
Dr. Watson: A grave? But that's not large enough to burry a dog in.
Sherlock Holmes: Be careful, Watson, don't spoil the footprints. Leave that to the Inspector.
Dr. Watson: What could possibly be is buried there?
Sherlock Holmes: Clothes... very old clothes.

To call this movie bad is an insult to bad things
27 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, I am a big Holmes fan, and have been for over half a century. I grew up reading the canon, and I saw the TV series in the 50's as well as the more recent one with Mr. Brett. I've seen almost every Holmes movie ever made. My only regret is not having seen the stage production with William Gillette performed around the turn of the century (the 19th), although I have seen the silent movie made from the play in 1920.

Based on all that, I think I have a pretty good tolerance for the vastly differing styles that Sherlock Holmes can come in. I enjoyed the humorous takes that have been filmed ("Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother", "Without a Clue", and "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes"). I even managed to watch "The Seven-per-cent Solution" twice. However, I was bored out of my skull by this movie. I actually had to get up and walk around to stay awake, just to be able to say I watched it all. Now I wished I hadn't.
