    It's a little bit Sherlock Holmes by numbers but still greatly entertaining. Worth it for The Creeper alone!

    A Sherlock Holmes installment that has the scariest and most disturbing villain in the series - The Creeper. Very well-written plot shows an intriguing and engrossing mystery behind a priceless pearl, which happens to be hidden in a seemingly cheap piece of porcelain. After investigating a bunch of gruesome neck-breaking murders, and a few encounters with a mysterious woman Naomi Drake, Sherlock Homes is finally able to add up all the pieces together and is on his way for an appointment with death, in the frightful persona of the aforementioned The Creeper. Well worth a watch.

    When all of these are done, and they ask me which one I liked the best, it's going to be VERY hard. Here's another great entry in this great series. A pearl has gone missing! Through a most ridiculous chain of events (but it's fun) a gruesome back breaking murderer, Napoleon Bonaparte and bric a brac all lead up to the conclusion. Nothing but fun all around.

    Another one of Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes film's, and ranks at the top with his other movies. This one about a huge pearl that's curse, a lot of blood has been spilt over this pearl, Film opens with it being stole from a man on a passenger ship, only to end up in the hands of the clever Sherlock Holmes, who returns it to the owners a museum. But is Sherlock really clever as the Pearl is stole when Sherlock disconnects the security alarm system . What does it take to recover it, you will have to watch the film to find out. A 4 star film in Black and White. I want to thank UCLA University for remastering these films.

    A solid entry in the franchise, Holmes and Watson must battle the wits of a Moriarty-lite mastermind, but also the hulking menace of Rondo Hatton's gargantuan back-breaker, The Creeper! The Beastly Serial Killer is definitely the most interesting element of what is essentially just a heist mystery, but Rathbone's eventual confrontation with the monster is well worth the wait. VF.
