Storyline

Sherlock Holmes is hired by the King of Bohemia to retrieve a compromising photograph from a certain lady. The King has tried to purchase the photo and even hired burglars to retrieve it, but without success. The woman in question is the very beautiful Irene Adler, an opera singer. She has made no demands of the King so it does not seem that blackmail is her intent. Using various disguises, Holmes learns as much about the woman as he can and is surprised when, after following her to a church, finds that she has married a barrister. Holmes stages a bit of theatre to get her to divulge the location of the photo but he finds he has met his match in both daring and intellect. Written by garykmcd

Music score!
12 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tell me how I can find out the name of the music score by Patrick Gowers. The score was when the king of Bohemia started off dancing with Irene Adler where the musicians were blindfolded. I'm a collector of sorts of fine music, somehow this melody struck me as superb. I realize this is a off-the wall request but this is a score you don't hear too often with the backdrop of all this trashy music you hear these days. The classics are still supreme if you take the time to listen with me having a background in listening pleasure of New Orleans type of music mixed with Blues, Dixieland (Pete Fountain, Al Hirt), Jazz (Louis Armstrong), Gospel (Mahalia Jackson), Rock & Roll (Aaron Nevilles, Fats Domino, Earnie Kdoe), Cajun.
