The set which represents Musgrave hall, would be used in a few of the "Universal" horror films. See more »
When Watson pulls the filing cabinet drawer open, he uses the first two fingers of his right hand. When the camera switches showing the plaque on the front of the drawer, all four fingers are curled around the handle. See more »
This is a very entertaining Sherlock Holmes film with some of the best - maybe THE best - camera-work I've seen in the Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce series.
The photography was better than the story, which was disappointing only in that it was too easy to spot the killer. Heck, even I found it no problem, so it must have been too easy.
The characters were interesting and all quite different. Some were mental patients who had suffered from World War II. Miburn Stone played the lone American and I didn't recognize the man who went on to play "Doc" in the long- running hit TV series "Gunsmoke." However, his voice sounded familiar.
