Movie Info

Holmes and Watson are again after Moriarty, but this time Scotland Yard doesn't even suspect that he's the one who wants to steal the necklace from Cleopatra's tomb. This film doesn't hold together like most of the Holmes/Watson movies and is an odd interpretation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story.

The film suffers a lot with its plot, based almost entirely on chance. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace

Christopher Lee makes this film bearable. He saves the day. I have seen the film a while ago, and that's what I remember the most: that the story is mediocre at best, but Lee is so talented he could make an awful script worthy enough to watch. His persona is perfect material for Holmes. His authority and substance fill the screen. Aesthetically, the picture is reminiscent of the silent films made in the first decades of cinema, a fitting atmosphere for a Sherlock Holmes adventure.
