Talky silent
12 October 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Decent entry in the silent series directed by Elvey. The cast is well chosen, the acting is fine, and this one has a lot of movement in it, but the whole movie is marred by the fact that Holmes is a cerebral character, and there is no way to do a mystery without a lot of talk.
