Goofs

At one point in the story, Sherlock Holmes encounters an American lawman named Eliot Ness (who in reality was to win fame in the 1920s for his efforts to enforce the Prohibition laws). Ness does tell Holmes that this is his "first case" in which case he must have been very precocious, the story is set in 1910, while Ness was born in 1903, which would have made him seven years old at that time.

Better than you might think
24 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Some readers seem to think Morgan Fairchild was wrong as Irene Adler ( Norton) but I think she was just right. Irene is an American and she is supposed to be a looker and a flamboyant actress. Morgan has those qualities in spades. Despite age differences ( which may have existed in the original story too), I think Lee and Fairchild have a chemistry. The rest of the plot was also not bad. MacNee is a little too goofy as Watson. I prefer the more dignified portrayals of John Mills, David Burke, Edward Hardwicke and even Colin Blakely. MacNee is too much in the Nigel Bruce mold. I wish that more "Golden Years" stories about Holmes had been made. As it is we must content ourselves with this one and "Victoria Falls". The mix of real characters with the fictional was very "Ragtime". Lee was outstanding as Holmes
