Great fun for mystery-lovers!
on 25 May 2003
This is something to watch on a rainy day in front of the fire. All the elements of classic mystery are there : a castle by the sea in Scotland, howling winds and rain, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson inimitably portrayed by Rathbone and Bruce, a gathering of friends (or enemies?), (victims or perpetrators)? Perhaps the mysterious and melancholic housekeeper knows, but she's not telling. Inspector Lestrade arrives to "solve" the case but manages to complicate it even more.
I enjoyed it a lot and will watch it again ; the only drawback is the quality of the print - it's a shame it wasn't restored for the DVD release.
