When Watson reads from the newspaper there have been two similar murders near Whitechapel in a few days, Sherlock Holmes' sharp deductive is immediately stimulated to start its merciless method of elimination after observation of every apparently meaningless detail. He guesses right the victims must be street whores, and doesn't need long to work his way trough a pawn shop, an aristocratic family's stately home, a hospital and of course the potential suspects and (even unknowing) witnesses who are the cast of the gradually unraveled story of the murderer and his motive.

At c.59 minutes Holmes "plays" his violin, but his fingerings do not match the music heard, particularly as he is restricted to the "G" string throughout. See more »
For Heaven's sake, stop sawing away on that infernal instrument! It was a sad day when Mother gave it to you, a sad day for her, a sad day for you, a sad day for us all... What I cannot understand is why, since you've had that violin with you so long, you never learned to play!

Entertaining thriller that is a lot better than the similar 'Murder By Decree' (or 'From Hell' for that matter).
This is a great little thriller which featured the Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack The Ripper premise many years before the better known 'Murder By Decree'. John Neville (The X Files' "The Well-Manicured Man") makes a great Holmes, and Donald Houston plays a very good Watson. Robert Morley appears as Holmes' brother Mycroft, and the rest of the cast includes dependable character actors like Anthony Quale, Judi Dench, Frank Finlay, and even Barbara Windsor of "Carry On" fame. 'A Study In Terror' lacks the big budget excess of 'From Hell' and is all the better for it. For me it is a much more entertaining movie.
