Sherlock Holmes hunts his deadliest adversary – the Madman known as Jack the Ripper! When Scotland Yard is unable to stop the gruesome rampage of Jack The Ripper, a citizens committee asks Sherlock Holmes (Christopher Plummer) and his trusted associate Dr. Watson (James Mason) to investigate. Now the brilliant pair must follow a terrifying trail of clues that includes a frightened psychic (Donald Sutherland), a suspicious inspector (David Hemmings), an institutionalized woman (Geneviève Bujold) and the Prime Minister of England (Sir John Gielgud). But even if Holmes and Watson’s remarkable powers of deduction can unmask the maniacal fiend, are they prepared to face the most shocking secret of all?
The picture is great. In the top 10's to me. It is classic. You will have to be Sherlock holmes to know what's gonna happen next.
nice acting, but not sherlock holmes
i love a good christopher plummer flick, but this was not a sherlock holmes. the emotion displayed is the antithesis of holmes' typical detached manner. no wonder plummer did not make any more of these. stick with basil rathbone and nigel bruce. it's no fun when the good guys lose.
It 's Watson's movie
This isn't a bad movie, even if Holmes is weak. James Mason's interpretation of Dr. Watson elevates (if not steals) every scene he is in.
