Goofs

A Scotland Yard police detective is seen picking up a discarded weapon with a handkerchief which was not a common practice in 1894, when the film was set. Fingerprint detection was not adopted in Britain until 1901, if that was his reason. Actually, the gun was covered in blood and the policeman would seem to desire keeping his hands clean of blood.

Quotes

Doctor Watson: Surely, it would be better for you to take the substantial sum we offer than to ruin this young woman's career, which can profit you in no way.
Charles Augustus Milverton: There, you're mistaken. An exposure would profit me indirectly to a considerable degree. I have eight or ten similar cases maturing. Ah, if it is circulated that I have made a severe example of Lady Eva, I shall find the rest much more open to reason. Do you see my point?

Screen version of Sherlock Holmes reaches its zenith in Jeremy Brett's portrayal of master sleuth.
18 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After seeing Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, no actor should ever display such conceit as to imagine that he could ever come close to Mr. Brett's portrayal of "one of the most interesting characters in literature". Jeremy Brett IS Sherlock Holmes and in my opinion there can be no other. The great actor Basil Rathbone is,I must admit, a close second but, is still second. One might make the argument that Mr. Rathbone's screenplays were inferior to the absolutely top notch productions afforded Mr. Brett and to this I would agree. However when all is said and done Jeremy Brett will always and forever be the only actor to truly "become" Sherlock Holmes. The book should be closed on this subject and we,the public,left to enjoy Mr.Brett's unique performances.
