Any movie about Sherlock Holmes is bound to be decent. That is about all this is. Watchable, but nothing special.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Sherlock Holmes investigates slayings of prostitutes by Jack the Ripper, with surprising results. Involved, often lurid story doesn't sustain through conclusion, but flaws overshadowed by warm interpretations of Holmes and Watson by Plummer and Mason. For another version of Holmes vs. the Ripper, see A STUDY IN TERROR.
